There has been some recent concern in Britain and North America that the increasing institutionalization of hospice care may compromise the movement's founding ideals.
The threats posed by the encroachment of mainstream medicine and the medical technological imperative to treat, are also a source of concern to hospice administrators and staff.
This study uses Australian data based on interviews with nurses and participant observation in an in-patient hospice unit and a community based hospice service to investigate whether the Good Death ideal, as central to the hospice philosophy, is compatible with the institutionalization of hospice care.
