Article preview: Death and dying is, sadly, something on the minds of tens of thousands of families across the UK, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to dominate our daily lives. This week is Dying Matters Awareness Week; an awareness campaign which focuses on a range of issues around death, dying and bereavement. Death remains a taboo for many, as an uncomfortable subject to discuss and confront. By making conversations about death and dying part of the national conversation, the Dying Matters Awareness Week campaign seeks to help make the subject less uncomfortable.
