SWSCMedia debate on palliative and end-of-life care next Tuesday; pictures of memorials

leave a comment »

I am taking part in an Internet Debate organised by SWSCMedia on social work and end-of-life care next Tuesday evening. I did not know what to expect, but it seems you can read a starting-off article on the topic on their website, called ‘Social work and end-of-life care: issues for debate’. At the time, you get loads of Tweets on the topic, and can contribute. I hope you join us.

Here is the link to the initial article: SWSCMedia article on Social Work and End-of-Life Care by Malcolm Payne

I’m planning to include pics from time to time in this blog, when I can find stuff about end-0f-life. I’m starting off with pics of memorials from different places. Over this week: pics from a cemetary in central Bratislava, Slovakia. Number 1 today: View through a porthole in the outer wall: looking in on people we want to remember.

I am setting up this blog, ready to start using it after I close down the similar blog that I am currently writing for St Christopher’s Hospice, London. Until I move over, you can see that blog on the web here: http://blogs.stchristophers.org.uk/one/
