This final module draws together knowledge from the previous modules affording the participant the knowledge and skills to adapt care to the changing condition. We will discuss the influences of the dying as they “die on line” in today’s media savvy world. The module covers assessing risk, providing factual contemporaneous reports, and reviews volunteering standards.

We will discuss what is required after a person dies and who is involved as well as traditional rituals such a lamenting, applying oils and herbs, body blessings, prayers and healing. We will discus the notion of creating a scared space for the transition of the soul and laying out the dead. Further focus is given to supporting the bereaved and looking after yourself.
