TGLE Research looks into different aspects of a good life’s end. While intercultural and individual differences exist, in general, elements of a good death are a death free from pain or with good pain management, maintaining autonomy and control over the time, manner and place of death, dying after a fulfilled life, surrounded by close ones, not being a burden to significant others, and being spiritually prepared to die.

TGLE Research contributed to research on methods to end one’s own life, and researching the course of self-chosen deaths by voluntary stopping eating and drinking and ingesting lethal medication in cooperation with Foundation Dignified Dying.
