Death: there’s a lot of it about

Flinders U and partner Care Search are running their  Dying2Learn MOOC for a third time. The federally funded course which explores attitudes to dying attracted 1156 starters for its first run in 2016 with nearly 900 completing.  Flinders researchers Jennifer Tieman, Lauren Miller-Lewis, Deb Rawlins, Deborah Parker and Christine Sanderson report participant responses. Participants in the first run were almost all women and two-thirds health professionals, but “interested to learn about death and dying outside their professional lives.”

“This may reflect a growing awareness that ‘palliative care is everyone’s business’ as the population ages and palliative care needs increase.”
