If you are interested in how you wish to die, then listen to this very interesting perspective offered by Doctor, and intensive care specialist Peter Saul.
Over the past 35 years Peter Saul has been intimately involved in the dying process for over 4,000 patients. He is passionate about improving the ways we die.
We can’t control if we’ll die, but we can “occupy death,” in the words of Peter Saul, an emergency doctor.
He asks us to think about the end of our lives — and to question against the modern model of slow, intubated death in hospital.
Two big questions can you help start this tough conversation.
He makes is very clear, he dislikes (no, hates) euthanasia.
This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxNewy, an independent event.
