Comment With this certificate you’ll learn how people manage grief and you'll explore the social context of death and dying, end-of-life care, bereavement, and ethics.
Description How do we approach death and dying at an individual level? How do we understand it within a wider social context? What are the ethical dilemmas faced by carers and dying people at the end of life? This certificate introduces a range of issues relating to death, dying and dementia care. Drawing on real case studies and acted scenarios, you’ll see and hear from people living with dementia, and from dying people and their carers. You’ll learn how people manage grief (including following sudden and mass death); and explore the social context of death and dying, end-of-life care, bereavement, and ethics. You’ll also explore the incidence and pathology of dementia and its impact on the person with dementia; how people are cared for at home and in care settings; and the ethical dilemmas associated with dementia. Throughout your studies, the emphasis is on the reality of end-of-life care and what changes can improve that care.
