Pick up information about Dying Matters Week

This year’s theme, ‘The way we talk about Dying Matters’, focuses on the language that we use, and conversations we have, around death and dying – specifically between healthcare professionals and patients, their carers and their families. Dying Matters Week 6-12th May 2024 focuses on creating an open culture in which we are comfortable talking about
death, dying and grief. For more information visit the Hospice UK website: www.hospiceuk.org

The way we talk about Dying Matters

Honest, timely conversations about death and dying are essential to good end of life care. Yet all too often barriers, including lack of confidence, taboos around discussing death, and confusion about who should be having these conversations mean patients, carers and families may not understand what is happening, or get all the information and support they need.

The brilliant people who work in our hospice are experts in death, dying, and end of life care. So we’re asking them to share their tips and advice on how to start honest, transparent conversations about death and dying to help people feel informed, supported, and empowered at one of the most vulnerable times of their lives.

This Dying Matters Awareness Week, we’re helping our local community to come together to talk about having those end of life conversations, whether with their healthcare professionals – or families, friends and colleagues.

Because the way we talk about Dying Matters.
