An online conversation about end of life care will continue on Friday when the ninth Salzburg Question is launched.

The last question in the series will ask people to consider what future research is needed to improve care for people with advanced illnesses and those toward the end of their lives.

The Salzburg Questions series started earlier this year on February 20 and has engaged people from all around the world.

Those who have been participating in the discussion have been using the #allmylifeQs hashtag. Between the launch of the series and November 10, the hashtag received more than 10 million impressions on Twitter and was used in more than 3,300 tweets.

The launch of the ninth question will coincide with World Science Day for Peace and Development.

November's question is - What future research is needed to improve care for people w advanced illness & towards the end of life?

Irene Higginson, the director of Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation, will help lead the discussion.  

The Salzburg Questions series has nine questions on matters involving palliative care. Each month, different individuals and institutions at the heart of the debate have shared a different question coinciding with an international day.

These individuals and institutions were involved in Session 562 - Rethinking Care: Toward the End of Life. Other Salzburg Global Fellows who have led discussions so far include Agnes Binagwaho, Lynna Chandra, Suresh Kumar, Sheila Payne, Emmanuel Luyirika, Richard Harding, Bruce Chernof, and Stephen Connor.

Salzburg Global Fellows are encouraged to take part in the conversation on Twitter on the day and afterward. They can also take part by sharing blog posts around each question.

Blog platforms could include ehospice, the EAPC blog, Palliverse, and the IAHPC Newsletter.

Participants on Twitter have already linked to research, podcasts, and papers during their discussions.

If you hold a debate, workshop or Q&A event on a Salzburg Question, please film it so it can be uploaded to a dedicated YouTube channel. Send your video to katie.witcombe@kcl.ac.uk.

A Twitter list of Salzburg Global Health Fellows has been created. If you would like to be added to this list, please let us know by subscribing or contacting us on Twitter at @SalzburgGlobal.
