Spending my weekend doing some auditing as my life is so exciting. Actually, it is really interesting, I am having a look at how people die with metastatic melanoma, and whether that’s been affected by novel agents.
I have volunteered to make an assessment of whether the deceased patients in our cohort had a “bad death”.
I am thinking of things like chemotherapy in last week/month, or death in ICU , or death in a resuscitation (although if the resuscitation and ICU admission were not futile, then that does not necessarily make them bad, does it….)
Are there proposed criteria for a “bad death” and a “good death”?
Thanks for helping me with my homework!
