Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

You have null days left.


This session will review the importance for both the patient and the family of identifying key cultural, spiritual and religious rituals and feelings. This is especially important when patients are dying and in the immediate period of bereavement. The importance of respecting diversity will be stressed.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
● Recognise the central importance of treating patients as individuals
● Recognise that dying patients are often searching for meaning in their lives
● Recognise that thoughtlessness may easily lower the standard of care in these situations
● Identify the importance of cultivating self-awareness, so you are in a position to hear what dying patients and their carers need from you, unclouded by your own preconceptions
