Details about Matters of Living & Dying

Why is it so hard to talk about dying? What are your fears about the process of dying? What past experiences inform your feelings about death? What is your understanding of palliative care and hospice? How can examining your own feelings and talking about death with friends and loved ones affect your perspective and help you to live more fully? How can you take control of how you choose to live and die at the end of life?
