We are passionate about educating people in Scotland to be fully informed about their options when someone dies. We have resources available for the general public and also for professionals who come into contact with dying and newly bereaved people.
We provide two online opportunities to explore your options After The Last Breath, to discern what is right for you and those around you. Our aim is that you will gain the knowledge, confidence and curiosity to support you to follow your instincts to best maintain your own well-being when someone dies.
Intensive Online Course
This course is run several times per year over 9 weeks. It is a mix of self-study and online group activity with 4 live online Q&A/discussion sessions. You receive materials each week including teaching videos, interesting links and illuminating exercises. This is an opportunity to learn with like-minded folks.
The self-paced modules cover the same material as the online course. They are an opportunity to explore the areas of interest to you at your own pace and in your own time. For each module you receive a teaching video (with transcript), interesting links to related material and illuminating exercises.
Feedback from hospice staff on training
“Fantastic to have this space and opportunity to learn and talk about the hard stuff and the taboo”
“Feel much better informed to help and direct family and patients. We all have options.”
“Very informative. Feel empowered to make decisions in my own life and also more able to speak with people I come into contact with”
We provide, across Scotland, awareness raising talks and a half-day or one-day interactive in-person workshop -“Get familiar with your options when someone dies”- for any community. We support anyone who would like to arrange a “Round the Kitchen Table” session; you make the soup and cakes and invite a group of friends round and we provide a fascinating and informative afternoon.
We provide input to undergraduate and postgraduate nursing education, and to continuing professional development sessions for nurses and other health professionals.
We are always available to discuss opportunities and possibilities for us to facilitate education. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
