What happens to the dying body?
 An interactive webinar with Dr Amanda Landers,
Palliative Care Physician and Lecturer
What’s it about?

Modern medicine has sanitised and medicalised death. The younger generations may have little contact with elderly relatives who are frail and ultimately die.

As a Western society we have lost the art of being able to recognise the normal signs and symptoms of a dying body. Consequently we worry relentlessly about our loved one’s suffering, without understanding what they are actually going through.

This webinar will discuss what happens within the body when it is dying, moving from the brain down to the gut and beyond. It will help explain some of the experiences people have shortly before they die.

  • Informative enough to be interesting for medical professionals, but with easy-to-understand language suitable for everyone.
  • After a short presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to join the discussion by typing comments and questions.
Live Event:  Sunday 20 August, 3 pm
from the comfort of your own computer or mobile device
