Medicalisation of Death

The medicalisation of Death occurs when society merely treats death as a medical-physical event. It ignores 'Total Pain' (see here or here), which includes the emotional/mental, social and spiritual aspects of dying and death.
As a result, death now tends to happen at hospitals. It used to happen in the familiarity of home, where most people would rather it happen, in the company of loved ones.
People have been deskilled at handling the death process. (See Video #6 at BBC, dated 2016, & BBC, posted and accessed 1 December 2016)
