D'Eynsford Death Cafe 2, Camberwell
Our second cafe only had two participants but we still had an interesting conversation! We explored: hospital clinician attitudes towards palliative care, feelings of guilt about deaths which weren't seen as 'good' deaths, what a good death might be, and the role of religion in the process of dying.
The cafe was described as gentle, safe, ambient and giving recognition. The person completing the evaluation form appreciated the fact that it ended up being a one-to-one conversation as English wasn't their first language. They also fed back that before the cafe, they thought a good death wasn't achieveable but the event changed their mind.
