This course involves downloading and studying the PDF Course Material and then, when ready, answering a range of questions online. Upon successful completion of these questions you will receive a downloadable certificate.
Norman Cousins said, “Death is not the ultimate tragedy. The ultimate tragedy is depersonalisation – dying in an alien and sterile arena, separated from the spiritual nourishment that comes from being able to reach out a loving hand…”
There was a time not so long ago where the death of residents in residential care settings was hidden. The final illness of the person was not mentioned to other residents, and when death occurred, not only was the dying resident often left alone, but the other residents were sent to their rooms or a ‘safe place’ so that the removal of the body would not be seen. That removal often consisted of a body bag on a wheeled stretcher hastily pushed through a back door. Often residents and staff were not even told of funeral plans, never mind being given opportunities to attend.
Thankfully, we now embrace far better alternatives. This course will talk about:
- Creating a good death in residential care settings
- Supporting families and staff as the end of life nears
- Ways to honour the life of the person who died
- Moving on
This course constitutes 4 CPD Hours.
You can enrol several members of staff at your home individually (each individual would have to pay and enrol separately) but you can also create a Group, allocate a Group Leader and then he/she can place the order online for multiple users and they would be the main contact for your Group.
Please check the ‘Group’ option to enable you to enrol and pay for multiple users. If buying access to more than one course you must choose a different ‘Group Name’ for each course. On completion of payment you will be allocated the number of course places based on your quantity purchased. As Group Leader you will then be able to manage your Group(s), add users etc via the Groups Dashboard and staff will receive login details to undertake the course.
