It is not uncommon to wonder how we ourselves can cope with death, but where do we even begin to help others through the process?
At the end of life how do we bring closure so that we have a 'Good Death'? This module will explore various issues at the end of life including ethical decisions that need to be made, the necessity of a living will, how to say ‘good bye’, sitting ‘vigil’, learning the signs that the body is shutting down, and rituals and beliefs that make a difference. You will learn how to walk alongside both the individual who is dying and the family as they deal with death and loss.
