Of special interest is the article Talking with Patients about Dying by T.J. Smith and D.L. Longo

Self-deception is a valuable personal coping tool. It allows us to aspire to significance, strive for new knowledge, and yearn to make a lasting contribution to the world despite the certainty of our inevitable end. Indeed, no arduous task would ever be undertaken if we were unable to exaggerate the benefits we expect from it and underestimate the difficulty of its accomplishment. Daniel Kahneman has called this the “planning fallacy,” our tendency to overestimate benefits and underestimate costs, and thus make foolish decisions to embark on risky pathways.”

Filial responsibility: does it matter for care-giving behaviours?

This paper examines the relationship between attitudes of filial responsibility and five different types of care-giving behaviours to parents among three cultural groups. It does so within an assessment of the relative importance of cultural versus structural factors for care-giving behaviours. However, cultural group per se is a strong predictor of care-giving behaviours as are: parental ill health, living arrangements, and relationship quality. This study suggests gerontological assumptions about the role of societal norms and personal attitudes in parental care-giving should be questioned. It also suggests the need for further inquiry into unpacking those aspects of ‘cultural group’ that are related to behavioural differences, and the importance of examining multiple types of care-giving behaviours and of distinguishing task-oriented helping behaviour from other types of assistance.
