Resources produced by the Uniting Church Western Australia, End-of-Life Care Task Group, for community discussion seminar.
This booklet, Conversations about the end-of-life is an initiative of the Uniting Church WA’s End-of-Life Care Task Group to help people have healthy conversations with family, friends and perhaps their doctor, about their preferences regarding death and dying. It also seeks to develop an informed awareness of the recent legislation in WA to allow ‘Voluntary Assisted Dying’ (VAD). Conscious of the diversity of opinion regarding this legislation, the series does not attempt to prescribe, but to clarify and encourage open dialogue about dying well.
Conversations about the end-of-life has been prepared to resource people who would value help in processing end-of-life issues, whether in relation to themselves or others they are caring for. There are ten case studies. They can be used individually or as topics for day seminars where two or three case studies are discussed on any one day.
