Death Cafes seem to be quite the rage, so I figured now is as good a time as any to start a little idea I’ve had in the back of my mind…#DeathClub!
Whoa, let me explain.
There is a very large online community of clinicians, patients, advocates and folks who are interested in, believe it or not, talking about end of life issues, death and dying. Twitter and Facebook have surprisingly robust communities devoted to these issues. In the academic arena, there is a huge community of ‘hard core’ end of life researchers who are churning out amazing studies and new data every day.
Why not bridge the two?
I’m going to be starting a section on my blog devoted to bridging this gap. I’m calling it: #DeathClub. The intention of #DeathClub is simple: to discuss and share interesting academic and research related articles pertaining to death, dying, end of life, advance directives, and so forth.
Each post will feature a single article, and will be written CASUALLY. No heavy duty statistical analysis. Just a quick, to the point, light hearted discussion about the latest and greatest news coming from the research world.
If you’re interested in summarizing a research article and having it posted in #DeathClub, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can pick your own article, or I can suggest one for you.
In the meantime, the first post is coming SOON!
