Module 1 - Dying, A Normal Part of Life

In Module 1, you will learn about the opportunities and challenges in managing end-of-life care in acute care hospitals. You will also learn about the importance of conversations and recognising the patterns of common illnesses and why this matters in end-of-life care. You will be prompted to reflect and identify your own skills in end-of-life care and how to improve them.

Watch, listen and learn from leaders such as Dr Peter Saul, a senior specialist in intensive care and a patient who, in the final stage of his life, wanted you to know about what he regarded as important.
