I read a story in a source other than wikipedia, that stated that Dame Saunders was influenced by C.S. Lewis in England, and the story implied that that is one reason she became a Christian. Does anyone know if that is true? L. Thomas W.
Doctor and Dame?
Dame Saunders was a doctor, shouldn't this be mentioned in her titles? Oliver Keenan 12:56, 1 January 2006 (UTC)
- I think that the title Doctor is superseded by Dame so you wouldn't use both --Vince 20:49, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
Is there another term when a woman is made a dame? --Daniel C. Boyer 21:05, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Not as far as I am aware --Vince 20:49, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Why both "the dying" and "the terminally ill"? What's the difference?
I'll answer my own question, but if when I do it seems like needlessly mincing hair-splitting, please with that in mind review the statement in the lead in which the two terms are used and consider editing out one or the other.
The obvious answer to my own question might be that the terminally ill are a sub-set of the dying, a group which also includes the mortally wounded or some such. I mean, someone who's been hit by a bus or shot or some such aren't normally thought of as "ill," so much as "fatally wounded" or some such. So maybe I understand the point made by using both terms.
But if "the dying" encompasses the terminally ill, to say "...the dying and the terminally ill..." is a bit like saying "...geometric shapes and triangles..."; which would be a strange thing to say. Am I missing something, or shouldn't we edit out "...and the terminally ill...? Chrisrus (talk) 04:16, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I prefer 'terminally ill' to 'dying'...seems this page is making the same mistake as those responsible for the hideous Liverpool Care Pathway....how 'terminally ill ' was Rusty Lee's mother we all ask. Sincerely doubt Cicely would have approved of 'the dying'...she had a very clear idea of what she was trying to achieve with palliative care, and it certainly wasn't clearing bed blockers or expensive to care for dementia patients out of NHS beds. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:01, 7 January 2013 (UTC)twl184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:01, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Her husband was Polish
It would seem appropriate to include something about Saunders' religious views as I understand them to be an integral part of her methodology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:18, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
