Abstract: Research findings and other information on three topics, death orientations, the dying process, and bereavement, are reviewed with a major focus on the elderly. It is suggested that relevant knowledge and issues in these and other areas in death and dying are important for gerontological practitioners and it is proposed that such death-related content be systematically integrated into academic curricula at the pre-service and in-service levels.
