Kathryn Mannix: With the End in Mind


Death: saying the word won't make it happen. Come and talk about dying, death and our forgotten wisdom. Join palliative care experts, researchers and the people of Dumfries and Galloway to peel back a few myths. Let's shed light on what happens during normal dying, and think about how our community could better understand and support the needs of its dying citizens. We might make you cry; we might make you smile; we will certainly make you think. After 30 years as a palliative care specialist, Kathryn Mannix is on a mission. She feels passionately that it’s time to re-claim public understanding of dying; understand what the process is, and how it allows us to plan and relate to our dearest during the last part of our, or their, lives. It’s time to recognise that, despite the advances of medicine, none of us are immortal and that dying well is a real possibility for which we can plan. All are welcome to join Kathryn Mannix, Dr Sarah Pickstock, and Professor David Clark on Thursday 22nd November, 5pm - 7pm at the Crichton University Campus, please click 'Register' on this page to secure your place at this event. In her unprecedented book, palliative medicine pioneer Dr Kathryn Mannix explores the biggest taboo in our society and the only certainty we all share: death. A Sunday Times Bestseller, and Shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize. Told through a series of beautifully crafted stories taken from nearly four decades of clinical practice, her book answers the most intimate questions about the process of dying with touching honesty and humanity. She makes a compelling case for the therapeutic power of approaching death not with trepidation but with openness, clarity and understanding.

Drawing to a Close Exhibition Opening Night


“Drawing to a Close: An Exhibition of Drawings at the End of Life” Thursday 22nd – Saturday 24th November 2018 As part of the national Being Human festival of the humanities, and to fit with this year’s theme ‘Origins and Endings’, the University of Glasgow’s End of Life Studies Group, in collaboration with the Yellow Door Gallery, Dumfries, is organising the first public exhibition of artist Norman Gilbert’s drawings of his wife while at the end of her life. The series of 12 intimate portraits were drawn by Norman as he kept vigil for a week at his wife’s bedside in the hospital. Pat Gilbert, a retired art teacher, died of a stroke in 2016 having lived with Alzheimer’s for a number of years. Members of the public are invited to attend an exhibition preview on Wednesday 21st November, 5-7pm, when Norman and Pat’s son, Dr Mark Gilbert, Research Associate at the School of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Canada, will be present to discuss the drawings, alongside academics from the Glasgow End of Life Studies group. We believe that the issues of death and dying need to be discussed more openly in society. Art, in all its forms, can offer a unique way of approaching this universal rite of passage. We hope that this exhibition will help promote honest and open reflections on this sensitive topic. About the Glasgow End of Life Studies Group Based at the University of Glasgow, we are an interdisciplinary group of researchers looking at death and dying in an international context. We aim to illuminate current trends and tensions, and offer insights and evidence to inform end of life policy and practice. Our approach is to bring together the best ideas and perspectives from the social sciences, humanities, public health and clinical disciplines. We aim to work openly and collaboratively. About the Yellow Door Gallery The Yellow Door Gallery is an association of creative practitioners in the visual and fine arts, crafts, and literature. Members include painters, sculptors, print-makers, illustrators, potters, weavers, designers, writers, and poets. The shop and the gallery at The Yellow Door is a vibrant and changing showcase for an impressive range of creative work by local artists. About the Being Human Festival Being Human is a national forum for public engagement with humanities research. The festival highlights the ways in which the humanities can inspire and enrich our everyday lives, help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world. In 2017, the Being Human festival featured over 300 events in 51 towns and cities across the UK, alongside a series of international activities – engaging the public with big questions, big debates and innovative activities. The 2018 festival will run from 15-24 November nationally, and the theme is ‘Origins and Endings’. Find more information here: https://beinghumanfestival.org/event/drawing-to-a-close/

Community Palliative Care in Kerala, India Glasgow End of Life Studies Group is proud to present special lectures from world leading experts in Palliative Care:  Dr Suresh Kumar; "Two Decades of Experience" Dr Suresh is an acknowledged leader of the community based approach to palliative care services.  At the Institute of Palliative Medicine in Khozikode (Calicut), he conceptualised and implemented a series of Neighbourhood Networks in Palliative Care for Kerala that became the foundation of a community-based and volunteer-driven movement that has spread across the state and beyond, engaging thousands of volunteers and community supporters, and also achieving recognition at the policy level. He is a major voice in the compassionate communities movement and a hugely influential figure in the promotion of palliative care for low and middle income countries.   Professor Devi Vijay; "Research Perspectives, Achievements and Questions" Professor Vijay's current work examines inequality, vulnerable communities, and mobilisation, with a focus on healthcare. She has been tracing the evolution of the community-based form for palliative care in Kerala, and its translations to other geographies. She has recently co-edited, "Alternative Organisations in India: Undoing Boundaries" (Cambridge University Press, 2017), and has published in journals such as Public Management Review, Marketing Theory, and Journal of Marketing Management. She was awarded the Fulbright-Nehru Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (2016) and was a visiting fellow at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University during the grant period. Recently she has collaborated with the Glasgow group and published work on the transfer of the Kerala model to West Bengal, India.
