The End of Life Experience: 3rd Global Interdisciplinary Conference
This global inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past four decades, scholarship in thanatology and palliative care has increased dramatically. Our conversations seek a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyse, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, it also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.
The conference welcomes all those who endeavour to address questions such as these, along with people engaged in analysing, re-imagining and/or improving end of life experience with a view to forming an innovative interdisciplinary publication to engender further research and collaboration. Augmenting our rich conversations, our ethos aspires to create relationships and on-going dialogues that re-envision patient-centred care.
