Daily Mail covers CDoC Research

Celia Kitzinger's research is reported in the Daily Mail

The sisters of a woman left severely brain damaged after she was injured in a car crash have published a study highlighting family concerns about how permanent vegetative patients are treated. 

Jenny, a professor in the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University and Celia, sociology professor at the University of York, hope their research, published in the respected Journal of Medical Ethics, will help inform debate about ways of dying when people become catastrophically disabled through illness or injury.

The paper, written by university professors Celia and Jenny Kitzinger calls for family perspectives to be taken in to account.
