The article by Kristjanson, Walton and Toye in this issue describes the Western Australian context of caring for older people dying in residential care. This response will very briefly draw on some of the work done in this area in the UK, Australia and the US. In the past few years several edited collections have provided extensive information about both the dearth of research as well as ongoing research in this area (e.g. Hockley and Clark, 2002; Katz and Peace, 2003; Morrision and Meier, 2003).
