Dying to Talk - A dialog on what matters most to us as we approach end of life.

COTA Victoria and Palliative Care Victoria invite you to Dying to Talk. This special event is on talking about what matters most to us as we approach end of life and how do we start conversations on what our wishes are for end of life care.

This seminar is for older people, family members, carers and staff working directly with older people. Bring your most pressing question about death, dying and grieving. Speakers include Dr Ranjana Srivastava, medical oncologist, physician, author and educator based at Monash Health; and Dr Barbara Hayes, a palliative care physician with experience in end of life decision making and care.

Venue: Bayview Eden Melbourne, 6 Queens Road, Melbourne 3004
Date: 27th May, 2014
Cost: Varies

Bookings are required.

Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, on whose land this website was developed. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders, both past and present and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We hope our work contributes to the wider project of respect and recognition between cultures in Australia. Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing receives project funding from the Australian Department of Health to administer the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) program in Victoria.
