Symposium on “How to address the elephant in the room?”
Date & Time: 5 September 2020 (Saturday) 3:00p.m. (video available for viewing)
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library
Description: "Everyone dies once." Dying should be like our other moments of living. It should be free from pain and fear. It should be comfortable, and with our loved ones as needed. But people always treat death and dying as taboo. At this symposium, we have invited a specialist doctor, a philosophy scholar, a family member and a nurse consultant to discuss how to talk about "death" with the loved ones, friends and patients.
