C001 End of Life

The End of Life Care Strategy, published by the Department of Health in 2008, identified a number of significant issues affecting death and dying people in the UK.

Some people die as they would have wished, but many do not. Many people do not die in the place that they would choose to: many do not receive the best care at the end of their lives; and there are many reports which show that people in their time of need have not been treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve. In this learning module we'll look at what you can do to make the final stages as peaceful as possible.

Throughout this learning module you will be asked questions to help you learn and to determine what you already know. There will also be some short quizzes to check what you have learnt throughout the module.

Duration:     2 Hours
