Josephine Graham was diagnosed with cancer for the second time two years ago. She is now a regular day patient at Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross. “I’m still on my journey,” she declared cheerfully yesterday at the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham, at the launch of an information video about palliative care.

One of the team members from James’s is Catriona Corcoran, a clinical nurse specialist. “There is a massive taboo around palliative care,” she says. “There is an old myth that it is about end-of-life care. It no longer is. It is about living until you die.” (Times) >
