Learning Object

This free course, The medicalised context of bereavement, helps you to explore the extent to which death and dying in western societies are medical events and what aspects of death and dying might be neglected as a consequence. The course covers the way that such things as medicine provide the context of the experiences associated with the end of life. After completing this course, you should be able to demonstrate sound knowledge and critical understanding of multifaceted and diverse approaches to death, dying and bereavement, explore multiple contexts of bereavement, integrate different experiences of death, dying and bereavement with theoretical knowledge, and critically reflect on policy and practice in order to promote the interests of dying and bereaved people.
