End of Life Care: The Principles M3B723143


This module will highlight and address the most contemporary concepts underpinning the delivery of high quality end of life care. The aim of the module is to present an overview of national and international vision, policy and priority specific to the provision and delivery of end of life care. Key issues underpinning death and dying will be appraised within both a clinical and societal context. Discussion and debate will centre on the application of principles specific to end of life care as identified in strategic directives and initiatives contained within government policy and action plans.
Key concepts such as holistic assessment, prognostic indication, recognising dying and the challenges surrounding professional and societal openness to death, dying and bereavement will be interwoven throughout the module programme.
This module will contextualise the correlation between the quality of end of life care delivery and the bereavement outcome of carers and families, whilst being cognisant of the emotional cost of ‘professional’ caring from a compassionate, resilient perspective.
