Toronto, Apr. 25, 1980 -- For immediate release
The long-awaited report of the Anglican General Synod's Task Force on Human Life titled, "Dying: Considerations on the Passage from Life to Death," is available to the general public.
The report, which has been the centre of major controversy for three years, and has gone through several revisions, is now published in its final form. The co-editors of the report were Dr. Lawrence Whytehead of Winnipeg and the Rev. Canon Paul Chidwick of Windsor.
"As has been said during those three years, and must be repeated again," said Archdeacon Harry H. Hilchey, the Church's General Secretary, "this is not a policy statement, it is a discussion paper. It will provide for Anglicans, and indeed many other Canadians, constructive assistance in grappling with the vital moral questions being raised by advances in technology and science. Also, it will give much-needed leadership in a critical examination of the manner in which we treat and minister to terminally-ill persons."
A copy of the report can be seen at Diocesan Synod headquarters. Copies may be purchased soon at retail outlets across the country or may be ordered now from Anglican Book Centre, 600 Jarvis St., Toronto M4Y 2J6.

Notes
"Recently, the bishops of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario endorsed a statement from their Roman Catholic colleagues commending organ donation." Author urges the formulation of a national Anglican policy commending the practice to all Anglicans. Such a policy "could give those who make the request for organs -- often hospital chaplains or social workers -- a Christian framework for their task. It could also reassure those making the decision, setting their gift within the Christian context of death and resurrection, measuring it against the highest Christian precepts."

"Ian Gentles, editor".
"This book is intended for several audiences: those who work professionally with the dying and the bereaved, those who must cope with the death of someone close to them, and those who wish to reflect on the issues, moral and intellectual, raised by death and bereavement. Two years ago the Anglican Church of Canada published a report by its Taskforce on Human life entitled 'Dying: Considerations Concerning the Passage from Life to Death'. The report has provoked much discussion, to which the present volume is a contribution". -- Preface.

Notes
"[By] Beverly Hall".
Includes bibliographical references and bibliography: p. [79]-80.
"Ours is a death-denying society. Fifty years ago sex was the taboo subject; now its death. Society pretends that death is not there and hides it away in dimly lit, solitary rooms in institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes. The dying person is often an embarrassment to medical staff who are oriented to cure, and unendurable to family members who want to avoid unpleasantness. .... Terminal care, when all active treatment of a patient's disease becomes ineffective and irrelevant to his needs, becomes palliative care. Palliative care is not a medical speciality. It is a concept and philosophy of care. Palliative care tries to alleviate distress in any of its forms, keeps patients as free from pain as possible without drugging them into insensibility, and provides medical, psychological, social, and spiritual support for the family as well as the patient." -- Intro.
"This book has evolved from [Beverly Hall's] working experience with terminally ill people through St. Mary's Anglican Church, Richmond Hill, and Hospice King (the prototype of community homecare in Canada)." -- back cover.
Contents: Introduction -- Learning from the Dying -- Physical-Medical Needs -- Psychological-Social Needs -- Spiritual Needs -- Understanding the Needs of AIDS Patients -- Care of the Caregiver -- The Hospice Concept -- Epilogue -- Endnotes -- Bibliography.
Author is an Anglican priest.
