The Royal Society of Medicine is pleased to host an event presenting the analysis and recommendations of the new Lancet Commission on the value of death. This is a multidisciplinary, multi-year and international collaboration to rebalance the fractured relationships of medicine and society with death and dying.
Join Lancet Commissioners, along with a range of external experts, journalists, healthcare providers, patients, and policy-makers to discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities surrounding society and medicine’s responses to death, dying, grief, and care for patients, families, and communities.
