From the Instructor:
As we know, living has a 100% mortality rate. Death comes sooner or later to all human beings. And it impacts not only the individual but the entire world in which the individual lives. Yet for the most part, our culture doesn't deal well with this universal experience. We live in an age where so much is medically possible that death can often seem like the product of a medical mistake, oversight or accident of some kind. We have come to see death as a disease or the defeat of life, rather than, as Dr. Ira Byock has described it, the 'culmination of human experience.' The purpose of this course is to help the student gain insight into her or his own response to the thought of death and to find in that personal work a sense of solidarity with the people she or he serves. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to: 1. Use the tools and insights offered in the course to reflect on their own responses to the awareness of their own mortality. 2. Assist dying persons and their families through basic end-of-life planning and decision making, in coordination with other professionals and support systems 3. Along with other health care professionals, apply palliative care measures to persons approaching the end of life 4. Working with other health care professionals, support the emotional, spiritual and social needs of persons approaching the end of life and their families. 5. Provide basic pre-death grief support to dying persons and basic post-death support to their survivors.
