Memorial Woodlands Training & Lectures. Dr Mark Taubert
Memorial Woodlands is providing a series of lectures and seminars to support the local palliative and end of life care workforce. They have partnered up with Gentle Dusk, a socially-minded organisation, experts in the field of providing training, workshops and events around death, dying and bereavement.
The lecture series started in May 2019 with the theme “Talking about Dying” with a mix of presentations and workshops. Followed by a lecture on Advance Care Planning in September 2019.
Our guest speaker was Dr Mark Taubert, Clinical Director and Consultant in Palliative Medicine at Velindre NHS Trust, Cardiff and contributor to the BBC Horizon programme “We Need to Talk about Death”. Dr Taubert led us in a series of reflections on cardiopulmonary resuscitation whilst Mireille Hayden took participants on a personal and experiential journey around what’s important to people at end of life.
40 local professionals attended the event and feedback was again very positive with 100% of participants saying they would recommend the event to others.
