England is facing the same EOL issues as we are:
GPs have been urged to do more to ensure patients’ end-of-life wishes are respected, after a poll found more than a third had never initiated talks with patients about end-of-life care.
Dying Matters (www.dyingmatters.org) is a national coalition of 17,000 members “which aims to change public knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards death, dying and bereavement.”
They have produced a series of brief films (2-3 minutes each) to emphasize the results of not talking about dying: \\\http://dyingmatters.org/page/i-didnt-want-that
And a marvelous short video of a veteran stand-up comic interviewing four people who are living with terminal illnesses The six-minute film was commissioned to encourage people to talk more openly about dying and bereavement, and to help educate health professionals involved in end of life care.: http://dyingmatters.org/page/last-laugh
