Since the dawn of time, human beings have been curious
about death. Most of us have little time in our busy
lives to think about the things that are important to us.
Often, it’s not until we have a personal experience that we
give any serious thought to our own life and our mortality.
The Death Talker offers a common sense approach to the
issues we should all be thinking about so we can live and
die well. The personal stories and practical information
provide a sensitive guide for exploring the ‘stuff that
matters’ to each of us and to help us have meaningful
conversations with the people we love.
Molly Carlile AM has over twenty years’ experience as a
specialist palliative care nurse, grief and bereavement
counsellor and educator. More recently she has held senior
executive roles in both palliative care and acute health,
currently as Chief Executive Officer of a large metropolitan,
community palliative care service.
