You Can't Ask That: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Panel Discussion

October 14th 2022 at 4:00pm

Dying is difficult in any language.

The power of words, actions, and human behaviour can have an enormous impact on the way families experience their palliative care journey.

This session draws upon real-life experiences, as we hear from families as they reflect on a time when their child was ill and receiving end-of-life care.

The conversation will be real and raw and will allow all involved to hear it ‘straight’ and learn what works, what doesn’t, and how we can be better.

In this session, we speak to a range of families, about their paediatric palliative care journey and how each conversation, interaction, and piece of new information was delivered, received, and digested, and how it impacted them as a family. This session is about listening, learning, and leading, it is a conversation about grief, truth, and life.

We acknowledge and appreciate the openness, vulnerability, and courage it’s taken for these families to share with us.🤍
