The University of Cumbria Institute of Health held its first Day of the Dead conference for its nursing, midwifery, and allied health profession students, sparking learning and conversations about death and dying and helping to equip graduates with skills for their future careers. Death and dying is not something many people are comfortable talking about, yet it is something that healthcare professionals need to discuss confidently with the people they support. This is an opportunity to hear from experts about a range of topics related to death. Coinciding with the date of the traditional Latin American Dia de los Muertos festival, in a first of its kind, the event attracted 200 students from health-related programmes delivered in Barrow, Carlisle, and Lancaster.
