Experts at a British medical academy launched a campaign to encourage individuals to better prepare for death and make it an acceptable subject for debate.

The Guardian said in a report that experts at the Academy of Medical Sciences in London saw that although death is an inevitable end for everyone, only a few are not bothered to talk about it, and most people did not plan on how they would like their end to be.

Leslie Fallowfield, a professor of psychiatry at Sussex University, calls on people to draw plans for their death, just as they plan to prepare for a new baby.

“We have birth plans where people record what they prefer, and all of us know that events sometimes replace our wishes, but we can think about them and make them as best they can,” he said. “We should not see the death plan as something terrifying. ”

“Failure to plan and talk about death means that many people do not spend their last weeks and hours as they choose, and families often leave with some remorse,” she said.

A survey of the Academy of Medical Sciences showed that 6 out of 10 people feel they know little or nothing about the last hours of human life, while many get their information about death through documentaries or other TV shows rather than talking to medical professionals.

The research showed that about one-third of the 1,000 people who participated in private interview interviews refused to answer questions about death and dying, indicating that many people feel uncomfortable talking about it.

Professor Sir Robert Lechler, president of the Academy, said: “The challenge of this forbidden matter is at the heart of the national campaign of the Academy.”

Fallowfield stressed that although death is sad by nature, refusing to talk about something that is inevitable makes it more traumatic for both the person who is dying and loved.
