Death and Dying Four types of doctor patient communication: Closed Awareness - Doctor (and often family) are aware, but the patient is not. Suspected Awareness - Doctors and family are aware and haven’t told patient, but patient suspects terminality. Mutual Pretense Awareness - Both parties know, but act as though nothing is wrong. Open Awareness - Both parties know and talk openly about it. Avoids distrust.
Death and Dying Elizabeth Kübler-Ross (1969) → helped establish thanatology. Based on interview with terminal patients, she identified 5 stages of psychological adjustment. Now called the 5 stages of grief. Five Stages of Grief 1. Denial Example - "I feel fine."; "This can't be happening, not to me!" 2. Anger Example - "Why me? It's not fair!" "NO! NO! How can you accept this!" 3. Bargaining Example - "Just let me live to see my children graduate."; "I'll do anything, can't you stretch it out? A few more years." 4. Depression Example - "I'm so sad, why bother with anything?"; "I'm going to die.. What's the point?" 5. Acceptance Example - "It's going to be OK."; "I can't fight it, I may as well prepare for it."
