Dying to Know Day: August 8

"'Death literacy' recognises the role that everyone has in end of life care and death care. Having knowledge helps us make informed decisions about the care, being able to act on that knowledge is empowering.  
For example, do you know: What an advance care plan is and how it is used? How to access palliative and end of life care in your area? Including death doulas or other end of life workers in your community? About alternatives to hospital death / traditional cremation/burial in your local area? What happens if you die without a will or if don’t have an enduring guardian?"

Death literacy... huh? — D2KDay
