Abstract

For complex anthropological, social, professional and legal reasons, many Western countries spend appreciable portions of their healthcare budgets on end-of-life care – between 13% and 25% of US Medicare budgets (depending on definitions). Paul Dolan uses a psychological model called ‘Terror Management Theory’ to make a personal exploration of the arguments for policymakers to assign a lower proportion of budgets to such purposes and to assign more influence to whole-life wellbeing.
