Palliative Care – Talking about Death
“People who are dying do not take on the persona of someone else, but die as themselves” (Death and Dying, OU).
Quality of communication can define the experience of death, yet it appears to present many challenges. Taboos, language, traditions and expectations are a few of the issues which may shape an individual’s experience at the end of life.
This session will explore how we communicate with people who are approaching the end of their life, and provide an opportunity to share our understanding and perspectives on this normal, but extraordinary, experience.
Tutor: Aine MacNamara
