Talking End of Life Doulas and Health Sociology in Europe
I am a bit quiet on the posting at the moment as I am in Europe where I spoke at the biennial European Society for Health and Medical Sociology (ESHMS) conference. A short holiday to recharge my energies and catch up with friends has followed the conference, but I do want to let you know how the conference went.
I presented on disruptions to the funeral industry in Australia and EOL Doulas in Australia. There is a lot of interest about Doulas in Europe, coupled with a genuine concern that poorer people are able to access our services – many colleagues were wondering about government subsidies for EOL Doulas in fact.
I plan to return to the next conference in 2020, where my research into EOL Doulas will be the focus of my talk.
If you would like to know mire about family-led or alternative funeral options, or are Doula-Curious ease do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to answer your questions.
