The medicalised context of bereavement


Unit image

This unit helps you to explore the extent to which death and dying in western societies are medical events and what aspects of death and dying might be neglected as a consequence. The unit covers the way that such things as medicine provide the context of the experiences associated with the end of life.

This study unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course K260 Death and dying [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , and is relevant to the following non-accredited course KG001 Improving end-of-life care.
