  • Pain-free status 
  • Engagement with religion or spirituality 
  • Experiencing emotional well-being 
  • Having a sense of life completion or legacy 
  • Having a choice in treatment preferences 
  • Experiencing dignity in the dying process 
  • Having family present and saying goodbye 
  • Quality of life during the dying process
