The Wellcome Trust Event
Visions of the Future: A Good Death
Fri 25 Aug 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Last Breath
Over 50% of people say they want to die at home, yet most of us will still die in hospital. What is our relationship with death as it becomes increasingly medicalised? Many people will never see a dead body - what does that mean for our own sense of mortality? Novelist and palliative care nurse Steven Amsterdam joins Bristol University’s Professor of Philosophy and author of Phenomenology of Illness Havi Carel for a discussion chaired by broadcaster and cleric Richard Holloway.
Part of our Visions of the Future series of events.
