Dying to Know Seminars
Dying To Know: Ethical Wills
For this session, we are excited to collaborate with Pilgrims Hospice Society in Edmonton to discuss how to create an ethical will.
Creating an ethical will is about finding a way to leave a written or oral legacy about who you are and what you stand for in your life. It provides an opportunity to communicate your wisdom, history, stories and especially, your values, to generations beyond your own. In this presentation, Carol will introduce the concept of the ethical will, share her own story about how she learned of it and the role it has played in her family, provide an outline of its structure and suggest ways individuals can form self-supporting groups to accompany each other as they find a way to create their own ethical wills. If requested, she will offer support and resources for the development of such groups.
Dying To Know: Deathbed Phenomena: Real or Imagined?
People who are close to death sometimes report visions of deceased relatives, friends, places, or religious figures. We call these deathbed phenomena (DBP), and they are more common than we think. Deathbed phenomena have been reported around the world and are now being studied in medical literature. This session will share stories from palliative care clinicians, explore the meaning of deathbed phenomena, and discuss how to support and talk with those who experience DBP’s.
