Hot Topic Webinar – In Sunset’s Glow: Life, Death and the Older Person

October 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

For everyone. Presented by the Centre for Palliative Care

This talk by Dr Lisa Mitchell will dwell firstly in that intersection, addressing questions about where, why and how older people die and the role that recognition of dying and Advance Care Planning have to play. We will examine the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and how ageism impacts on provision of care (including palliative care) for older people. Ending on a lighter note, we will look at some of the interesting work that is emerging in Geroscience and how we can reimagine ageing in ourselves and others.

About the presenter: 

Lisa Mitchell is a Geriatrician and General Physician, clinical ethics consultant and medical lead of the Barwon Health Clinical Ethics Service.
She is an ageism researcher with additional research interests including Advance Care Planning and care for people with dementia.
