There's no denying the reality of death and taxes, and as the cliché says, none of us will escape either. We can take a bit more control of the former though according to two of our festival guests, both medical practitioners, and both with many years experience in the field of palliative care. Dr Hannan and Dr Corke believe it's time to be more upfront about our mortality, and speak about death and dying more openly, and they will be discussing their ideas about what helps make 'a good death'  with fellow panellists Julian Burnside and Jessie Cole on Sunday at 10.45am.
