Dying to Know

Event Date

Saturday, 13 October 2018

On the eve of “World Hospice and Palliative Care Day”, 2018, ‘Hospice Bangladesh’ , Aastha Hospice, World Child Cancer & EMK Center jointly organise a seminar program “Dying to know Day”-bringing death to life. ‘’Dying to Know’’ events activate conversations and curiosity, build death literacy and help grow the capacity of individuals and community groups to take action toward end of life planning. Dying to Know is an initiative of The Ground Swell Project inspired by the book Dying To Know – bringing death to life. Talking about death as well as preparing for death is one kind of taboo in our society. People usually do not like to talk. Even patients suffering from life-limiting as well as their family member have unknown fear, hesitation to talk about death and also regarding advance care planning. "Dying to Know” event has positive reception in the Palliative Care sector specially regarding advance care planning. We hope that this event will help community people to raise awareness to make advance care planning through talking about end of life.
