About the Speaker
Dr. Mannix has spent her medical career working with people who have incurable, advanced illnesses. She started possibly the world’s first Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) clinic exclusively for palliative care patients and devised “CBT First Aid” training to allow those working in the sector to add new skills to further assist palliative care patients. Dr. Mannix has worked in teams in hospices, hospitals and patients’ own homes, optimising quality of life even as death is approaching. Having worked with many thousands of dying people, she has found their ability to deal with illness and death both fascinating and inspirational. Dr. Mannix believes better public awareness about what happens as we die would reduce fear and enable people to discuss what matters most, with the people who matter the most to them.
This Special Event Speaker Series begins at 7:00 a.m. AEST and will conclude at 8:00 a.m. and includes a 15-minute Q&A session with Dr. Mannix. So, grab a coffee and join us online.
