Third‐wave public health? Compassion, community, and end‐of‐life care

Third‐wave public health? Compassion, community, and end‐of‐life care Clinical approaches to end‐of‐life care often extend their practise into community care, but frequently that practise has been under‐recognized and under‐theorized. A seamless practise connection with community approaches to end‐of‐life care is crucial to a total healthcare response to death and loss. One‐on‐one practises find their greatest therapeutic and aftercare support in a complementary community approach to that care. What public health models might we adapt to assist the psychological professions to support a community response to death and loss? This article reviews recent World Health Organization (WHO) work in community development, in particular the “Healthy Cities” projects. From this review, a “Compassionate Cities” framework is suggested as one fruitful way forward to address issues of prevention, health promotion, and aftercare in a holistic approach to end‐of‐life care.

Abstract

Clinical approaches to end‐of‐life care often extend their practise into community care, but frequently that practise has been under‐recognized and under‐theorized. A seamless practise connection with community approaches to end‐of‐life care is crucial to a total healthcare response to death and loss. One‐on‐one practises find their greatest therapeutic and aftercare support in a complementary community approach to that care. What public health models might we adapt to assist the psychological professions to support a community response to death and loss? This article reviews recent World Health Organization (WHO) work in community development, in particular the “Healthy Cities” projects. From this review, a “Compassionate Cities” framework is suggested as one fruitful way forward to address issues of prevention, health promotion, and aftercare in a holistic approach to end‐of‐life care.
