From hospice care to funeral plans, talk of death is becoming mainstream. But some questions remain taboo. What frightens you most about dying? What happens on the road to death? Other animals don’t have those anxieties. And doctors and vets don’t have all the answers. They simply accompany patients and caregivers facing the last frontier – and it gives many of them food for thought. Join palliative care doctor Professor Scott Murray (The University of Edinburgh) and Dr Caroline Hewson (The Pet Loss Vet) to ponder the art of us all dying well.
