Dr Kathryn Mannix

Kathryn Mannix is on a mission to revolutionise the way we think and talk about the process of death and dying. A pioneer of palliative medicine in the UK for over 30 years, her best-selling book With The End In Mind (shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize) sends a vital message to the living and answers the most urgent, intimate, and fascinating questions about the end-of-life process with touching honesty and humility. Starting in cancer care and changing career to become a leader in the new discipline of palliative medicine, Dr Mannix has spent her medical career working with people who have incurable, advanced illnesses, and brings this wealth of experience to the task of helping others to navigate these conversations and decisions.

Kathryn Mannix Event Series

Dying, Death and Wisdom in an Age of Denial
Conversations with Dr Kathryn Mannix

Maxim Institute is proud to be bringing Dr Kathryn Mannix to New Zealand for a public conversation evening and a professional workshop for medical practitioners. With each audience, she will share stories from over 30 years of practice in palliative care to outline how accessible, quality palliative care can improve our society’s relationship with the process of death and dying. Afterwards, she’ll be joined by local experts to discuss what needs to change societally and culturally to improve the way we support dying New Zealanders and those who care for them.
