GRIFFITH UNI LECTURE - Friday 4th September
Was it the topic ? Was it the recent Aussie movie “Last Cab to Darwin”? Many U3A members from several Gold Coast groups packed the venue for Griffith University’s U3A September lecture about living wills.
Associate Professor Saras Henderson shared her qualitative research and experience speaking on “Advanced Directive: Impact on health professionals being advocates “. We learnt that a living will is an advanced directive that details the sort of treatment we want, and don’t want, for our care. Saras spoke about quality of life and how that may be different for different people. Input from the audience added depth to this complex subject. Many questions were raised and many points pondered. It was another stimulating U3A event.
Stay tuned for the date and topic of the next lecture.
