Dr Sarah Winch is head of the discipline of Medical Ethics, Law and Professionalism at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Queensland, and CEO of Health Ethics Australia, a charity, aiming to improve death literacy for Australians and compassion safety for clinicians. 

Sarah consults nationally and internationally to clinicians and government agencies on matters of ethical concern. A prolific author, her book The Best Death. How to Die Well (UQP), joins her other contributions to improving community death literacy: death cafes, death over dinner and wine and die.
