Navigating the language of dying - Virtual Forum


5 March 2019, 01:00pm to 5 March 2019, 02:00pm

Virtual Forum


Talking about death and dying can be difficult and at times, confusing. Clinicians, patients, families and carers can all face challenges in having earlier and ongoing end of life conversations.  This one hour virtual forum will explore some of the challenges, benefits and practical strategies to initiating meaningful end of life conversations.

Invited Speakers

  • A/Prof Richard Chye, Director Palliative Care St Vincent’s Hospital Network
    Conversations with patients, families and carers

  • Kate Munro, End of Life Care Coordinator, Hunter New England Local Health District
    Conversations with clinicians and communities

  • Brian Long, Consumer
    Conversations from a personal experience


All health professionals are invited to attend including those working in aged health, oncology, emergency, ICU or renal care settings. Everyone has a role to play in providing care to people as they approach and reach the end of life, their family and carers.
