The following article is the first in a series of TED Talks we will be sharing on death and dying. Talking about death and dying doesn’t bring death closer. It’s about planning for life, helping us make the most of the time that we have.

Let’s Talk About Dying

We can’t control if we’ll die, but we can “occupy death,” in the words of Peter Saul, an emergency doctor. He asks us to think about the end of our lives — and to question the modern model of slow, intubated death in hospital. Two big questions can help you start this tough conversation.

 

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxNewy, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.
