Can we conquer the last taboo to achieve a 'good end'?

There is only one certainty in life, and that is death. Modern culture can mean we avoid talking about our mortality. In turn that can make it harder for us to express and achieve our wishes for end of life. Join a panel of experts chaired by Andrew Thorns, Medical Director for Pilgrims Hospices, for a warm and sometimes even light-hearted debate about this important human topic.

The audience is invited to ask questions and share ideas for an open and interactive Q&A session.

Supported by: Pilgrims Hospice

This event will be live streamed for those unable to attend.
