Understand Death Better Q&A

Do you have burning questions about death or end-of-life care? At these Q&A sessions I explore in a clear and compassionate way, the issues around preparing for death, supporting each other as we face our own death, and accompanying those we love, the process of grieving and the choices we have to make to die with dignity.
