This single practice-focused module explores death and dying from a professional practice perspective. This includes discussion of the principles of palliative care and notions of a 'good death'. Students will evaluate ethical, legal and professional frameworks, and policy and service provision, and their applications across different cultural and practice settings.
The student will develop a critical awareness of the dying process and symptom management, communication and assessment, viewed within their cultural context. In the process, the student will develop greater self-awareness of their attitudes to death, dying and loss, and how these impact on the dying person and their families.
