Monday, August 8 is Dying to Know Day, an annual campaign empowering Australians at all stages of life to live and die well.
The campaign is designed to encourage people to become more ‘death literate’ and develop the knowledge, compassion and practical skills to make informed end-of-life choices.
This year’s theme, Get Dead Set invites Australians to overcome their fears and discomfort around death and to take action on end-of-life planning in a way that is right for them.
Death is a natural thing that happens to all of us and it is important to address the fear and hesitancy we sometimes have around end-of-life planning.
Every person’s priorities, plans and wishes are unique and raising awareness around ‘death literacy’ in our community will lead to better end-of-life care for us all.
Tips to Get Dead Set include:
The community is encouraged to join the conversation and share their experience via social media using the hashtag #GetDeadSet and #DyingToKnowDay.
