Are you interested in learning about the issues and choices surrounding end-of-life? Despite the universality of death, the inventions of new technologies and political circumstances have created more ambiguities regarding the definition of death, and how to deal with the dying. These conflicts have increased the need for more informed decision-making regarding end-of-life issues. Individuals who make an effort to learn about the options may be in a better position to influence events in their own lives and those of their loved ones. In this class, we talk story about these issues in order to live a fuller life.
SLO: Students will gain a better understanding of aging, dying, and end-of-life issues including elder care, hospice care, long term care, advanced directives, and POLST's.
