Dame Cicely Saunders

Dame Cicely Saunders (2009) creator of the hospice movement believed in an open method to loss of life conversing all concerns with the individual and relatives such as, spiritual, emotional, physical, and social happiness. Those four components fashioned the control of what she labelled ‘total pain’. She believed that as the symptoms influenced these four components it was crucial they had been all addressed and treated, to give individuals ‘whole person ‘care and the finest value of life at the same time as being ill. But Davis cited in Stevens et al (2009) highlights the need to be aware about extraordinary cultures like conventional Buddhists with their own approaches of arranging for death. The National Institute for Health Care Excellence (NICE) (2009) delivers direction for the requirement for multiprofessional group work, to make certain that ‘whole person’ care is personalised and communicated successfully. Powerful communication is essential to save expectations being made through bad explanations and/or anticipations (2009). Rogers (2009) advises that biomedical and psychological methods are dominant in encouraging expert communication. While the biomedical method specializes on the disease, signs and remedies, the psychological practise is more concerned with the ‘person-centred’ method, but both intend to improve communication with the death of the individual. Okon (2009) challenges each of those methods due to their failure at accepting that death is not known and cannot be defined.
