Professor Donna Lamping

Upon graduating with a doctorate in psychology from Harvard in the early 1980s, Donna Lamping, who died on 8 June, made great efforts to convince sceptical doctors of the need to take into account not only the duration of life when evaluating the efficiency of care and chemotherapy, but also pain and the quality of life. At this time, Donna had no idea that 30 years later she herself would be faced with this issue. When Donna developed questionnaires to obtain a measure of pain and discomfort by patients, she did not know that she would one day find herself in the waiting room of a prominent doctor where she would fill out one of said documents as a patient. Here, he would thank her vigorously for her work that helped revolutionise medical practice!
