Death and dying is around us always. So are its myths and taboos. It is a topic we often avoid even though it is as common as birth. This can leave people unprepared for the inevitability of their own and others dying and death, resulting in unnecessary suffering. Discuss clinical examples, selected readings, and practical issues to better understand the multidimensional aspects of palliative care to be better prepared for a compassionate end of life. Topics covered include finding meaning, managing symptoms and controlling pain, planning ahead, talking with your physicians, depression and anxiety, and grief and bereavement. An off-campus field trip may be included.
