Description

Countless clinical, administrative dilemmas arise when dealing with an older adult and family during the dying process.  What are the best practices when families are pursuing curative care when palliative care is called for?  What happens when the elderly patient does not have advance directives?  This interactive and thought-provoking program will examine the areas of anticipatory grief, dementia and common dilemmas as they relate to death, dying and grief in long term care settings.

 

This course is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.  There is an introduction to death and dying which is necessary and appropriate for beginners.  It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the types of grief that can be encountered and how to best work with seniors to allow for appropriate grieving to occur.
