Overview

Learn about new directions and the latest thinking on end of life care.

Death itself may be certain, but how we die involves many challenges. On this course, you’ll explore the care we receive when dying, cultural variations and beliefs around what makes a good death, and the planning and timing of death.

With increasingly ageing populations, we are living longer but dying more slowly. New ideas around end of life care are therefore emerging in different contexts. You will discover the patterns and global trends taking place in palliative care, and explore these new approaches from a social science and humanities perspective.

This course is for people interested in or engaged in matters relating to death, dying, bereavement, palliative and end of life care.

This course will be of special interest to those working in healthcare, including physicians, nurses, social workers, and other health and social care professionals.

The course will also appeal to practitioners, students, researches, volunteers and policymakers in end of life care, as well as social activists and those working in artistic and cultural media who are working on end of life issues.

It is ideal for anybody considering taking The University of Glasgow’s MSc End of Life Studies

A very interesting and challenging course that opens the conversation on death and dying - a topic that needs to be talked about. The content is very relevant. I think one area that is perhaps lacking is the a section on palliative/end of life care as also a very valid choice .

I enjoyed the course and it covered some areas that I had not through or learnt before. I found it very easy to navigate and pick up where I left off.

I like that it is free too.

This is an excellent course. It is well-designed and progresses naturally. I learnt a lot in the course. The videos are very clearly articulated, and they have good content. The articles are also well-chosen and informative. I'd have liked some quiz or "test".

Thanks for the good course.
