About the Event

Find out about how humans and animals care for each other during end of life, how this is regulated, where it happens, who is doing it, and explore future directions of multi-species care with us. 

Do you have question about end of life care? Drop in and ask a Vet or Doctor or post it on our graffiti wall!


Co-hosted with Professor of (human) palliative care Miriam Johnson this event aims to engage a public audience with the research project and create an opportunity to think more broadly about our future research plans and what this research could achieve.

All proceeds from the room hire and catering etc will go to the hospice.
