The death of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle? The Lion King and Palliative Care? Changing the direction a river flows? Intrigued? Well listen on!
In this episode Dr Amara Nwosu asks the question “what is culture?” and asks how a society’s culture can affect how Palliative Care is considered and delivered. Can we change and create a culture where death and dying are not considered taboo subjects? This is from a UK perspective but hopefully it will be of interest.
