August webinar – Dying to know
COTA NSW’s August webinar, Dying to Know – Talking to loved ones about death, tackles a difficult but vital topic.
Communicating with loved ones and setting your wishes in place can help make sure the last part of your life is as close as possible to the way you want it to be. It’s important to do this before it’s too late, or things can become very stressful for everyone concerned.
Join COTA NSW on Dying to Know Day to hear advice from a panel of experts on holding these tough conversations and making sure you have made your wishes clear.
Our panel includes:
- Shayne Higson – CEO of Dying With Dignity NSW, the advocacy organisation that was largely responsible for NSW achieving voluntary assisted dying law reform in May this year.
- Dr Kerrie Noonan – clinical psychologist, social researcher, innovator and founder of Dying to Know Day, working to create a more death literate society.
- Karen Riley – holistic therapies practitioner and end-of-life doula, facilitating and supporting clients and their loved ones through the end stage of life.
Please note – this is a zoom webinar, but you can dial in to listen using a landline. Just register, and the phone number to call will be available in the email when it is sent out.
