Death and Integrative Healthcare – Approaching the Final Frontier
October 16 @ 10:00 - 17:00£50
Saturday 16 October 2021
10am – 5pm (online)
Death is the one thing we will all have to face but despite all the medical advances of recent times, we still struggle to do it well. It remains a source of fear for many and something which people often associate with inevitable suffering which can hold back more open discussion. We hope to shine a light on this dark subject, develop an active inquiry about death and bring a degree of optimism to what can seem like a tricky topic.
During this NCIM Integrative Healthcare Forum, we will be joined by leaders in mainstream Palliative Care as well as those working in more innovative and even experimental ways, sometimes with inspiring results. We hope Health Professionals delivering care across a diverse range of settings, will gain important insights and awareness and join in the discussion about what else is possible in the way we approach and deal with death and dying. Death may not, after all, be the final frontier.
