IRISS.FM spoke to Mark Hazelwood, Director of the Scottish Partnership of Palliative Care; and Barbara Chalmers, Final Fling Founder about the significance of Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief Awareness Week 13-19 May 2013, and the type of events (including Death cafes!) that are happening throughout the week.

Final Fling

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.
