palliative care

Webwatch July 2012

It’s a subject that not everyone wants to embrace or give due consideration to in life, but most people would agree that dying is a natural part of life, and is something that all of us, perhaps, should consider and plan for appropriately. An initiative that recognises the importance of celebrating life and making decisions about death is Final Fling, a website recently launched by Barbara Chalmers of Plan B Collective.

Dr Carole Comben, University of Stirling

Carole Comben speaks about a study that was conducted on the role of the palliative care social worker in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children of adults who are receiving palliative care.
