PUBLIC HEALTH APPROACHES TO DEATH, DYING AND GRIEF
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will be given the opportunity to explore the social, cultural and historical factors which are the context of contemporary beliefs and practices in end-of-life care. Particular attention will be paid to the experiences of dying and grieving people and their caregivers, and the response of Australian health services. The aim is for participants to develop, through a fresh understanding of the social and cultural resources available to them, a public health approach to end-of-life care, and to apply this approach in their own professional contexts.
