Death, Dying, and Bereavement

Price: $69.95 
Item # N1740  

Course Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

This course contains essential information for healthcare providers on the phenomenon of death, dying, and bereavement. Current research findings are interjected to provide evidence-based information that can be applied to clinical practice. The course reviews interventions in helping those living with life-threatening illness. As dying perspectives are reviewed, the role of the professional in palliative care and hospice will enable provision of the best quality of care at the end of life. Content on advance care planning will help learners become better communicators with patients, understanding the differences between a living will, medical power of attorney, informed consent, and a do-not-resuscitate order. This third edition also contains updated content on grief reactions to loss, religious beliefs and practices at end of life, and communities responding in situations involving sudden death. Principles of the CRISIS Framework that can alleviate disaster-related bereavement are now included. 

New topics in this edition include homicide and helping in the immediate aftermath as well as grief in the workplace, which will be valuable to any professional, especially a professional responsible for creating bereavement policies .  Pre-, inter- and postvention of suicide has been updated and greatly expanded. Helping bereaved adults and children and effective communication skills to be put to use when tragedy strikes are also discussed. With attention to the healthcare professional’s personal and professional stress, the final chapter concentrates on burnout, compassion fatigue, and building resilience.
