Palliative Care Tweetchat – 5 November

PallANZ 201511

Palliative Care Australia invites everyone for another tweetchat on Thursday 5 November 2015 using the hashtag #PallANZ. The theme is “Let’s talk about death, baby!”

A tweetchat is designed to get the community talking about a certain topic or questions. Tweetchats need people to use the same hashtag so everyone can track what everyone is tweeting. A tweetchat is a great way to get a conversation started and hear from people from all over the world. To learn more about tweetchats and how they work click here.

See our previous tweetchat analytics from 8 October 2015 for World Hospice and Palliative Care Day.


  • T1 Have you ever had a conversation about death or dying? How did it go? What went well? What could’ve been better?
  • T2 Do you think talking about death and dying is important? Why or why not?
  • T3 What stops us from talking about death and dying as a community, and as individuals?
  • T4 What can we do to help us talk about death? As patients/carers/friends, doctors/nurses/clinicians, or as researchers/policymakers?
