Kathryn worked as a palliative care doctor in hospices, hospitals and patients’ own homes for 30 years before she turned her attention to promoting better public understanding and discussion of dying.
She wasn’t quite prepared for the response to her invitation to get better acquainted with dying: her books became best-sellers, she has thousands of social media followers and millions of video views, and invitations to write, broadcast and speak around the world. It seems that people really do want access to better information, and Kathryn’s preferred format is stories.
With the End in Mind is stories about the way people live while they are dying. Listen is stories that explore how we can all step up into those important yet daunting ‘tender conversations’ in our families, friendships, work and home communities.
