Professor Scott Murray
Emeritus Professor of Primary Palliative Care, University of Edinburgh
Professor Scott Murray is passionate that early palliative care may be universally available in the community and requested by patients and their family carers to prevent suffering. He has helped doctors and nurses in every continent to deliver palliative care as part of their daily work through chairing national, European and international committees. Scott has made videos in many languages to explain how most people die nowadays, so that dying may be better understood and less feared: he considers that planning ahead lets people have the best last phase of life possible. Scott believes that remembering we all die, helps us live life to the full.
