Media Release - AMA Queensland calls for death education in schools

 Queensland doctors are calling for death education to be taught in the classroom in a bid to demystify the processes of ageing and dying. 

AMA Queensland Chair of General Practice Dr Richard Kidd said the number of people aged over 65 was growing at a faster rate than younger age groupsi, putting the onus of end-of-life care increasingly on the next generations. 

“Young people need to be educated about medical, legal and other issues that surround ageing and dying so they are capable of making informed choices when the time comes,” Dr Kidd said.
