New Resource: Animation "what is it like to die?"

Posted Thursday February 28, 2019
Home About Us News New Resource: Animation "what is it like to die?"

As part of Hospice NZ's  #weneedtotalkaboutdying campaign they have created an animation called ‘what is it like to die?’ to provide information about a part of life that many New Zealanders have become unfamiliar with. 

We know many people worry about dying, and ‘How will I know I’m dying?’ and ‘What will it be like?’ are some of the questions most often asked of Hospice staff.

It is hoped this animation will allow people to access information in their own time, and perhaps a good prompt for further conversations with their health professionals or families.

The video was co-written by palliative care specialist Professor Rod McLeod, who also narrates the video.

You’ll find the animation via this link, please share with colleagues and communities, as a resource for teaching, or within your own networks where the information is needed. https://youtu.be/toO_oI16XsQ

The #We need to talk about dying campaign, aims to support people to talk about death and dying a bit more, in the hope they’ll worry about it a bit less.

There are range of videos and materials, all available on the HospiceNZ website http://www.hospice.org.nz/weneedtotalkaboutdying Please share these resources widely with your networks. Supporting more conversations about normal death and dying will benefit everyone.
