About This Source - acmedsci

The Academy of Medical Sciences (Acmedsci) is an independent body in the UK representing the diversity of medical science. Their mission is to advance biomedical and health research and its translation into benefits for society.

Recent from acmedsci:

  • Learning from crisis: building resilient systems to combat future pandemics
  • Addressing the threat of antimalarial drug resistance to malaria elimination in South East Asia
  • Welcome to your COVID career support space
  • With an ageing population and demographic changes, the number of people dying each year in the UK is only set to increase. The Academy of Medical Sciences’ new public engagement project on death and dying, ‘The Departure Lounge’, aims to contribute to the growing conversation around death and dying.

    By breaking lingering taboos, the Academy hopes to encourage people to share their own thoughts on death and dying, and how thinking ahead can benefit both patients and families.
