Care of the Dying: Learning About Dying: Death, The Final Stage of Life

This video will help caregivers to examine and come to terms with their own attitudes and emotions about death and the dying process. The video stresses the importance of caregivers learning to understand and accept death as the last, natural stage of the life cycle before they can effectively fulfill the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient (and the family members). Caregivers will learn that quality care for the dying goes past physical comfort and pain management to include giving the patient a choice in what happens during the final days of life, and respecting the diverse cultural traditions and spiritual needs of each patient.
