The recently published End of Life Care Strategy in the UK encourages people to talk openly about death and dying (Department of Health, 2008).

It is through talking that attitudes may shift and dismantle the taboo around death. There are numerous areas to consider, but for this commentary, one fascinating area of death is the meaning and impact of last offices.
