How many of us are touched by the death of a loved one, friend or colleague? How many of us feel able to talk openly about our own future death? Sharan Watson, Lecturer in Post Graduate Health Care Practice, Award Leader for PG Certificate in Palliative Care, and Chair of Derbyshire Alliance for End of Life Care, explains why it’s important to talk – and plan – for death.
