How We Die in Canada by Caroline Shooner

It’s with great pleasure that we are sharing the newly completed thesis How We Die in Canada by HARC committee advisor, Caroline Shooner, a family physician based in Haida Gwaii. She undertakes the challenging terrain posed to physicians by the topic of medically assisted suicide through a literary analysis of All My Puny Sorrows written by Canadian author Miriam Toews, and inquires into the complexity of patient and caregiver narratives when facing this question. Settle in with a cup of tea to read this moving work.
