Good Death Week runs between 14th – 18th May 2018 and is working to make Scotland a place where there is more openness about death, dying and bereavement.
• What does a “good death” mean to you?
• What can we do to make sure people in Scotland “die well”?
• What steps have you taken to plan for your death?
Follow and join the conversation using the hashtag #GoodDeathWeek to share your views on how to improve the quality of conversations around death.
One of the Academy’s Five Provocations for the Future of Health and Social Care is ‘emphasising humanity’, which aims to ensure that the needs of individuals and groups are considered when addressing challenges in health and social care. Being able to have open, honest and practical conversations about death helps to promote the voices of people with lived experience, improving lives and deaths in the process.
