Four in five Swiss residents — and significantly more women than men — die in hospitals and residential homes, according to a new report that summarizes findings from 33 research projects conducted for the National Research Program on “End of Life,” launched in February. The report, which provides a comprehensive overview of current evidence on how people in Switzerland die, also reflects on how society can enable people to die with dignity, as well as how countries can better meet needs for palliative care.
