2nd May in Liverpool – approaching communities about the last taboo

The Duncan Society are holding a Public Meeting on  Thursday 2nd May 2013 at 6pm at the Liverpool John Moores Student Union, Hague Building, Maryland Street, Liverpool.

The speaker is Mary Matthiesen from the Conversations for Life programme.

Title:    Conversations for Life: A Public Health Approach to Engaging Communities Around The Last Taboo.

The Conversations for Life approach and programme is proving effective in engaging communities (staff, public and community agencies) to overcome the fear of talking about death and dying now, in order to support more people to live their last days in the place of their choice in the future. As founding director of the Northwest based Conversations for Life programme and social enterprise Stories to Change, CIC, Mary Matthiesen will share elements of this programme and early evidence of success of partnership working with community-based Trusts, Public Health, Cancer Networks, Local Authority Care Homes and community voluntary agencies towards Regional and National goals including: increased staff confidence, enhanced partnership working between local community-based services and improved public access to local information and services.
