Memorial Woodlands are organising a series of lectures and seminars around end of life care to open up conversations around death and dying and support the local palliative and end of life care workforce. The first event around talking about Dying was a resounding success. 

"Absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much. Meeting others, starting the important conversations around Death and Dying. What a glorious place -every little detail creates a real sense of nature and peace" 

"Great venue, great workshop, great knowledge"

This second lecture will be focussing on Advance Care Planning.  Led by Mireille Hayden, founding partner of Gentle Dusk and Dr Mark Taubert, Clinical Director at Velindre NHS trust and contributor to the BBC Horizon programme "We Need to Talk about Death". The programme will cover the speakers favourite topics namely Wishes and Preferences at End of Life and DNACPR Decisions.

The lecture will be taking place at Memorial Woodlands, Alveston, Bristol, on Wednesday 25th September from 15;00 until 17:30 followed by refreshments and an opportunity to network.
