In the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Dr Lynn Bassett will be exploring how our approach to death, dying and bereavement changed in the wake of COVID-19.

Join Dr Lynn Bassett to explore how dying is something we can talk about, plan for and manage rather than something to fear and avoid discussing. It is aimed at helping ministers, pastoral visitors and others who visit the elderly, their carers and the bereaved. All welcome.

This is an online event, organised in partnership with Growing Old Grace-fully and Faith in Elderly People. To learn more contact events@leedschurchinstitute.org or phone 0113 245 4700.

About the speaker

Dr Lynn Bassett worked as a healthcare chaplain in acute and palliative settings from 2001 – 2015. Lynn has a PhD in Palliative Care and her doctoral thesis explored silence as an element of end-of-life spiritual care from the experience of palliative care chaplains in the UK. Lynn has articles published in Palliative Medicine Journal, The Journal for the Study of Spirituality and Health and Social Care Chaplaincy.

This is the first in a series of events to help explore how dying is something we can talk about and plan for.
