Abstract

Dying is not merely biological; it is also a social process. Just as humans cannot have a good life in isolation, they cannot have a "good death" in isolation. This Article explores the factors that should be taken into account when designing a culturally sensitive dispute systems design (DSD) that incorporates conversations about end-of-life care in a community. Conflict practitioners and attorneys could actively participate in reducing end-of-life care inequalities in advance care planning (ACP) by moving DSD beyond the purview of health care and legal institutions and into the community.

Keywords: Death and Dying, Advance Care Planning, Dispute Systems Design, Conflict Resolution, End of Life Care
