Returning death back to community – Cormac Russell

Published on Dec 6, 2017

In
the final plenary of the Hospice UK National Conference 2017, Cormac
Russell speaks about the hospice movement as an attempt to return death
back to the centre of community life. Whilst recognising the importance
of clinicians and services, he will explore the space beyond the limits
of what institutions can do to assist our end of life experiences, and
shine a light on how the assets of community are of vital importance in
this space in having a good life into death, and dying well in the
fullness of life.
