Anyone caring for someone with a serious illness will naturally think about how to support a “good death”. But what is a good death? In the McMaster Continuing Education Caregiving Essentials Webinar Series, join host Donna Thomson for a conversation with Dr. Kathy Kortes-Miller, best-selling author and Canada’s favourite unconventional death educator.
Kathy Kortes-Miller, MSW, PhD has a passion for palliative care and improving the end of life care for all. She is an associate professor in the School of Social Work and the Director of the Centre for Education and Research on Aging and Health at Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada. Kathy is the Lakehead University Research Chair on Aging and End of Life and is committed to improving the care provided at the bedside and in the community. She is the author “Talking About Death Won’t Kill You” with ECW Press and the co-host of a new podcast Disrupting Death; Conversations about Medical Assistance in Dying. When not working she can be found nagging her lovely young-adult children, winning at a board game against her husband or walking her best friend, Lucy Maude.
