Dying to Know Day Discussion

 Registration is closed for this event
The annual Dying to Know Day is a community initiative to help us all become more comfortable thinking and talking about issues and ideas around the end of life. It aims to improve Death Literacy. 'Death literacy' recognises the role that everyone has in end of life care and death care. Having knowledge helps us make informed decisions about care options, being able to act on that knowledge is empowering.

For example do you know:

· what an advance care plan is and how it is used?

· how to access palliative care in your area?

· about alternatives to traditional cremation/burial in your local area?
