Today a new report by the Royal College of Physicians, called Talking about dying: How to begin honest conversations about what lies ahead, highlights some of the barriers doctors encounter when having conversations with patients about death and end-of life care.

The report revealed that culture, confidence and practicalities were some of the reasons for doctors not proactively having difficult conversations about death with patients.

Steven Wibberley, Chief Executive of Cruse Bereavement Care was interviewed on Sky News Radio about the importance of having quality conversations about death and end-of life care with medical professionals.
