LONDON, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Everyone dies. The goal is to last as long as possible, and to go peacefully and with dignity. For much of the world, dying well is a challenge.
A new report from the Economist, dubbed the Quality of Death Index, ranks nations based on the quality of their palliative and hospice care. The United Kingdom tops the list, with the rest of the top ten mostly occupied by wealthy nations of the West, including the United States, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands and France.
