To raise awareness and understanding about palliative care, Flinders has created some useful resources from the Dying2Learn MOOC (Massive Open Online Course).
Dying2Learn was developed and run by Flinders’ CareSearch and took place in April and May this year.
If you want to learn more about palliative care in Australian you can check out the following:
- An infographic showing statistics and quotes from participants in the Dying2Learn course Dying2Learn 2017 InfoGraphic (74kb pdf)
- The top ten films depicting death and dying, nominated by MOOC participants as one of their tasks Top 10 Favourite Films Portraying Death (2.92MB pdf)
Almost 2,000 people participated in the Dying2Learn MOOC this year and many great conversations occurred.
An article was also written for The Conversation based on responses to one of the MOOC activities where participants were asked to think about alternative words we use to describe death instead of saying ‘the d word’.
Check out some of these euphemisms on the Dying2Learn Resources 2017 page.
