Illness, Crisis & Loss is a premier refereed and international journal. It furthers an understanding and knowledge of the social scientific, psychosocial and ethical issues associated with life-threatening illness, traumatic human crises, grief, and loss. The broad and unique focus of the journal makes it relevant to a wide range of social scientists, qualitative and quantitative researchers as well as students, grief counselors, therapists, social workers, thanatologists, physicians and nurses, medical ethicists, and anyone else who works with people in crisis situations across the world. The journal is famed for its interdisciplinary and global focus.
