Abstract Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer are leading causes of death with comparable symptoms at the end of life. There is little evidence comparing the two diseases in terms of place of death, one outcome of terminal care. Aims: This study compares the place of death of people dying from COPD or lung cancer in 14 countries. Methods: P opulation death certificate data from 2008 were collected from 14 countries covering place of death, underlying cause of death and demographic information. We included patients dying from lung cancer or COPD and used descriptive statistics and m ultivariable logistic regressions to describe patterns in place of death . Results: Of 5,568,827 deaths , 5.8% were from lung cancer and 4.4% from COPD. Among lung cancer decedents , home deaths ranged from 12.5% in South Korea to 57.1% in Mexico while hospital deaths ranged from 27.5% in New Zealand to 77.4% in France. In COPD patients, the proportion dying at home ranged from 10.4% in Canada to 55.4% in Mexico

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
