DYING with DIGNITY: The MEDICALISATION of DYING

 

Speaker: PROFESSOR KEN HILLMAN AO, Professor of Intensive Care, Liverpool Hospital, Sydney; Director, The Simpson Centre for Health Services Research, University of New South Wales.

Author of ‘A Good Life To The End: Taking control of our inevitable journey through ageing and death’ (2017), he asks why so many elderly people linger in pain and confusion in

ICU when all they want is to die at home in peace.   A crucial and timely rallying cry against unnecessary suffering and for humanity and gentle acceptance at the end of our lives.
