The author reflects on palliative care in relation to community nurses and their support for patients who are dying, and it mentions the concept of a death café which is defined as a group of people who meet and discuss various aspects of death and dying while eating food and drinking beverages such as coffee and tea. According to the article, Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz was an early proponent of death cafés. Social change and an effort to normalize death are assessed.
