Dying Well podcast – the importance of wellbeing when terminally ill

News and Blog

As a local hospice we’re always pleased to share resources that help to open up discussions around end of life care.

One of our patients who is currently being cared for by our community team, has created a three-part podcast mini series in conjunction with What Works Wellbeing where she speaks to experts in wellbeing, palliative care and healthcare policy.

The series discusses the importance of wellbeing when living with a terminal illness, what works based on the evidence available and evidence gaps that need more exploration.

We hope lots of you will take the time to listen to the series.
