About the event

Immerse UK & Barclays Eagle Labs Present: End of Life, Grief + XR image

How can technology help us live more fully and support us in our final moments? What are the ethical implications of bringing emerging technologies into hospices, or helping us reunite with loved ones passed?

Covid-19 has forced us to confront challenging subjects around mortality and transformed how we grieve and attend funerals into the digital sphere. Join us for this special event on the role immersive technologies can play in palliative care and new ways we can create a more grief literate society.

Speakers:

  • Dr Sheila Popert | Medical Director of Prospect Hospice in Swindon
  • Dr John Troyer | Director of the Centre for Death and Society  | University of Bath
  • Kelly Sinclair Vicars | Northern California-based Artist & Creative Producer
  • Sarah Ticho | Healthcare Lead | Immerse UK (moderator)

This webinar is free to join, but sign up in advance is essential.
