Navigating the language of dying - 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.
