On my own terms

A film and discussion about the experiences of people who have been involved in assisted dying

What’s on offer?

You are invited to join us for a film screeing sharing the experiences of people involved in assisted dying will be shown which will last about 40 minutes. Following this we will have a question and answer session with the audience and the lead researcher and a doctor from Switzerland. 

What’s it about?

Jersey has begun to pass legislation to legalise assisted dying and will be the first part of the United Kingdom to do this. Often the discussion about assisted dying focuses on its morality and can be very polarised.  In this film we will explore the experience of people who have chosen assisted dying, and the impact on their families and healthcare workers.  We aim to present a range of experiences to enable  audiences to consider different perspectives.   

Who’s leading the event?

Professor Nancy Preston, Professor of Supportive and Palliative Care, Lancaster University.

Open to

Mainly aimed at an adult, predominantly older audience but might be of interest to sixth form students considering a career in health care and healthcare workers in general.

Of particular interest to

People who are considering end of life choices for themselves or with a relative/friend; health care professionals.
