Physicians in Queensland, Australia are calling for death education to be taught in the classroom in a bid to demystify the processes of ageing and dying.
Among other things, AMA Queensland Chair of General Practice Dr Richard Kidd says that people should be creating Advance Care Plans as early as adolescence. Young people will also need to know how to make a will. “Including these sorts of issues or death education in science, legal studies, health and other school subjects will help build this understanding.”
