My First Death

Friday 16th November, 2018

18:00, Royal College of Nursing

How do healthcare professionals cope with death? In what ways do our deaths affect them? Come along to this event at the Royal College of Nursing for a frank, candid, and informal conversation about death, dying, and mourning. Doctors, nurses, and other practitioners will each take the mic for five minutes to share their first experiences of patient death and reflect on the emotional costs of care. You will also have the opportunity to think about and discuss the issues raised in a range of interactive activities.

Doors open at 5.30 and the event will start promptly at 6pm.

Event is free to attend but booking is essential. 

This event is part of the Being Human Festival of the Humanities
