Event description

Description

Death with dignity is the final frontier of human rights, so supporting your clients to accept, embrace and make plans that will allow them to live well right to the natural end of their life is the single kindest act you can perform.

This workshop will provide insights, tools and experiences to help you to have those difficult but important conversations with clients, whether you work in home or residential aged care. Focusing on wellness, we’ll provide tools to help you in your person-centred approach to end of life care.

The workshop will cover:

• Exploring what it means to die well
• Understanding different cultural attitudes to death and dying
• Working with simple tools to help clients create their goals and individual plans for end of life
• Learning nurturing statements and actions that support clients
• The importance of support teams and how to help a client create one
• Unpacking Advance Care Directives and other legal documents
• Dealing with grief: your own as well as your clients’
• Resources to help increase your literacy and capacity with death and dying

“...highly successful and enlightening, providing a platform for professional and lay people to discuss issues and to provide advice regarding the many aspects of ‘putting their house in order’ for their end of life requests.”
The Hon. Andrew Constance MP
