Ted Talks are available on the All Ireland Institute of Hospice & Palliative Care Hub specifically relating to palliative and end of life care.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues.
