    Plenary session 4 Death stories: truth and consolation
    We live in an age that has lost its understanding of death. A process that was once recognised, acknowledged and accompanied has become a place of loneliness, dread and fear. The fear feeds reluctance to talk; and reluctance to talk holds help at bay. In the palliative care professions, we are addressing this fear one patient at a time, one family at a time. But what if the public perception could be changed? What if we could restore the forgotten wisdom of the deathbed? It’s time to talk about dying. Not just amongst ourselves; not only at our conferences and in our learned journals. It’s time for a public conversation. For centuries, we have used storytelling to deal with the Big Issues: life, death, transcendence, power, vulnerability. Before we leave conference, let’s think about telling stories. How can we distil the truth into a format that brings normal dying out of the darkness? How do we tell the story of dying in a world that turns away?

What does hospice care mean to you?
