Overview

This course is designed to provide an in-depth overview of the emerging role of end-of-life (EOL) doulas, how they fit into existing healthcare models, and the issues, challenges, and rewards that surround this field of end-of-life care.

Throughout the course, learners will be exposed to a wide variety of published information, interviews with industry professionals, and chances to examine their own experiences, beliefs, hopes, and fears about the death and dying. We intend to create a supportive learning experience with lots of opportunities to build collegiality, as the subject is intense, challenging, and affecting.
