This FOCUS discussion examines what it means to respect the final wishes of the dying.
And how can any of us do that, when most of us are reluctant to even bring it up?
There’s the nitty-gritty stuff like a will, powers of attorney and advanced-health-directives.
And then there are the things around the edges; where do you want to spend your final hours, what will happen to your pets and what do you want played at your funeral?
Taking part in the discussion is nurse practitioner, Shannon Tassell and Dr Margaret Sealey, a palliative care counsellor from Murdoch University.
