Lecture Theatre 1 ~ Flinders Uni building, Tonsley Campus, enter just past Robotics Lab on Ground Floor

Death is something we will all one day face. So why is it so hard for doctors to talk with their patients about dying? How can the medical profession better help people navigate the final chapters of their lives with confidence, direction and purpose?

Renowned surgeon and writer, Atul Gawande, explored those questions in his bestselling book, Being Mortal. Now, Gawande teams with FRONTLINE to bring his personal journey - and the stories of his patients and their families - to life. He challenges us all to re-examine how we think about death and dying.

This film also explores the ways in which having a conversation around the question "What are your priorities if your time is limited?" can empower patients to live their lives fully. Being Mortal shines an unprecedented spotlight on how patients, families and doctors all experience the end stages of life, for the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life - all the way to the very end.

What matters in the end?
