Oh death, where is thy sting? Healthcare, Death and its depictions

Oh death, where is thy sting? Healthcare, Death and its depictions


Why is Death and Dying so scary? Is it the unknown? Fear of pain?

In this episode, Amie and Sara discuss all things related to death and dying. How do nurses and other healthcare professionals deal with death and dying? Are we expected to be desensitized to death? Does this impact our emotional wellbeing or the way we deliver palliative care to patients and families? We also discuss the narrative on death and how it has been depicted in films and television and how this shapes our viewpoints and perspectives. 

We would like to dedicate this episode to Dr. Nadia Chaudhri, whose grace, fearlessness and poise in life and death will continue on for decades to come.
