“Tonight, we’re focusing on death and the dilemmas we all must face. Here to answer your questions: writer and doctor Karen Hitchcock, who believes we should be helping the elderly to live well; journalist and broadcaster Andrew Denton, who used the Wheeler Centre’s Di Gribble Argument to make the case for voluntary assisted dying; Ana Lamaro who is living with advanced cancer and hoping for a conscious and peaceful death; Ralph McConaghy, the head of the palliative care unit at Brisbane’s Wesley Hospital; and Victorian doctor Rodney Syme who, for 25 years, has been helping terminally ill patients who want to end their lives. Please welcome our panel.”
