This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some concluding thoughts. Until recently, little attention has been given to the development of a public health approach to palliative care at the end of life. It is hoped that this book has shown the challenges and potential of a public health approach which is focused on populations rather than on individual patients and their families. This book provides a wide range of information about public health at the end of life, and it shows evidence that it is unlikely that good dying for all will be attained by limiting our societal efforts to the improvement of palliative medicine or palliative nursing.
