How To Plan For The End of Life

On this episode, we’re talking about death. Specifically, we take a look at end-of-life care in Australia from an individual and societal view.

Distinguished Professor Jane Hall from the University of Technology Sydney discusses how health economics and individual choice together can improve the way we do end-of-life care. Plus, Nicole speaks with a palliative care nurse about how to plan for the final stages of life.
