GRN 220: Issues in Death and Dying

Discipline: Gerontology

Credit Hours: 3

Dying is the last stage of living. The dying process is as individual as each person is unique. This course will help the student develop a positive attitude toward death and dying and provide a knowledge base for working with individuals and their families. Medical technology has the capacity to prolong life. This and the changing legal and moral attitudes have contributed to many ethical issues and dilemmas. These will be investigated and possible solutions explored. An experiential learning component involving hospice and palliative care is a requirement of this course. This course is offered as needed.
