Event description

Description

Join us for a thought-provoking and unique evening with Dr Katherine Sleeman, the first palliative care specialist to receive the prestigious NIHR Clinician Scientist Fellowship.

Featured on BBC2 Horizon Programme ‘We need to talk about Death’ earlier this year Dr Katherine Sleeman, who is a clinician and academic at the Cicely Saunders Institute King’s College London, will be sharing her insights, expertise and latest research on the importance of palliative care and what this means to society.

Her unmissable appearance in 'We need to talk about Death' highlighted the evidence for the benefits of providing palliative care earlier and more collaboratively.

Addressing an audience at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in 2014, Dr Katherine Sleeman explored what it means to have a good death and the individual and societal barriers to achieving this. View this video here.

A lively 'In-conversation' session will follow the talk from Dr Katherine Sleeman. The panel of guests will include other professionals and individuals with a particular interest in palliative care.

Is the ability to anticipate death and prepare for it important to you? Can control and choice over the manner in which we die be possible and do you think this is achievable? What part do you think hospices should play in this?

Have you got a question for our expert panel? Submit these prior to the evening to ensure we explore the topics of conversation that are important to you. Questions to be emailed by 17:00 on Friday 1 November to carla.brown@arhc.org.uk. Questions will also be taken on the evening.
