About the Festival
Last year the Department of Health issued a new policy document entitled 'End of Life Care Strategy' with the aim of improving quality and freedom of choice for those approaching death.

This first Transitus Festival is concerned with all the issues surrounding the end of life, but it seeks to address these questions in a wide context, based on cutting-edge developments and research on all aspects of death and what lies beyond.

Whether your special interest is in caring for the dying, funeral celebration, disposal of the body or afterlife research, the Transitus Festival aims to redefine your understanding of the event that all of us will have to face.
