Cicely

cicely, (Myrrhis odorata), perennial herb of the family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae). It has a leafy hollow stem 60 to 90 cm (2 to 3 feet) high; much-divided leaves, whitish beneath; a large sheathing base; and terminal clusters of small white flowers, of which only the outer ones are fertile. The fruit is dark brown, 1.9 to 2.5 cm (0.7 to 1 inch) long, narrow, and beaked.Was responsible for establishing the discipline and the culture of palliative care. She introduced effective pain management and insisted that dying people needed dignity, compassion, and respect, as well as rigorous scientific methodology in the testing of treatments. She abolished the prevailing ethic that patients should be cured, that those who could not be cured were a sign of failure, and that it was acceptable and even desirable to lie to them about their prognosis.

Cicely Saunders became, and perhaps always was, a grande dame and natural leader, and established a reputation in the national consciousness almost on a par with that of Florence Nightingale. She became a folk hero after the journalist Victor Zorza and his wife wrote a persuasive and moving account of their daughter’s death in a hospice. David Tasma’s death coincided with the death of Cicely Saunders’ father and that of a close friend, and she fell into a state of "pathological grief." She felt that, at last, she knew what God had called her to do, which was to build a home for dying people, where scientific knowledge should be combined with care and love. She supplemented her almoner work with being a volunteer sister at St Luke’s Hospital in north London. (Source: www.bmj.com)
