Since the dawn of time, human beings have been curious about death. Most of us have little time in our busy lives to think about the things that are important to us. Often, it s not until we have a personal experience that we give any serious thought to our own life and our mortality. The Death Talker offers a common sense approach to the issues we should all be thinking about so we can live and die well. The personal stories and practical information provide a sensitive guide for exploring the stuff that matters to each of us and to help us have meaningful conversations with the people we love. Molly Carlile AM has over twenty years experience as a specialist palliative care nurse, grief and bereavement counsellor and educator. More recently she has held senior executive roles in both palliative care and acute health, currently as Chief Executive Officer of a large metropolitan, community palliative care service. "
Molly Carlile was appointed a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AM) in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in 2014 "for significant service to community health through seminal contributions to organisations providing palliative care and to the performing arts".
