Description
This research is a visual and empirical ethnography examining the design of clinical / semi-clinical locations of death, in relation to institutionalized dying in contemporary society. Through field observations at two palliative care sites in Alberta and interviews with end-of-life healthcare professionals, it compares between hospice and hospital settings of palliation. The study attempts to understand how palliative spaces are designed, operated, and perceived, while also raising questions about whether the design of places of death—and ideas associated with them—might affect patient experiences in, public accessibility of, and social attitudes towards palliative resources.
