Mr Tony Wicks presents the story of his wife, who chose to end her life in Switzerland to prevent further suffering from multiple system atrophy. As palliative care was not able to help anymore, Mr Wicks shares her journey to a peaceful death, and his own journey of supporting her decision.

This lecture was filmed at the RSM in London for the 'Choice at the end of life: Current practice and overseas developments' event on the 9th February 2018.
