Sharma, Krittika (2015) The Role of Dignity in Death and Dying: How Might We Overcome STigma and Encourage the Aging Population to Actively Participate and Prepare for Death and Dying? [MRP]

Item Type: MRP
Creators: Sharma, Krittika
Abstract:

The idea that one's own competence provides a secure sense of identity is extremely crucial for the patients. Encouraging a clear and empathic line of communication can determine a patient’s state of mind- whether they feel empowered to experience a sense of wellness or unspoken concern, shame or guilt which may lead to a feeling of illness. By having ongoing conversations devoid of stigmatized words, The Suitcase Project is a sensory based cultural probe designed to assist in the enquiry, reflection and preparation for a good death. In the long run, it intends to reach out to health seekers of all age groups, encouraging meaningful conversations and serve as a
preparation tool for the inevitable forthcoming event.
