Dying Matters Awareness Week

Updated Wednesday, 28th April 2021
Learn more about death and dying during this year's Dying Matters Awareness Week: 10th-16th May with our FREE courses, videos and interactives.

We only get one chance to have our dying wishes met, which is why it’s vital to talk, plan and make arrangements for the end of life – before it’s too late. The recent Open University co-production made with BBC Ideas  - Should everyone have an ‘end of life plan’? -  outlines some of the key issues. Did you know death, dying and bereavement has been a major research and teaching theme at the OU for over twenty years? Find out more on our research page.

During this year's Dying Matters Awareness Week  (10th-16th May 2021), we have curated a collection of free learning content from OpenLearn to open up the subject that many people still find difficult to talk about. This year’s theme is about being a good place to die  - physically, emotionally, and with the right care and support.
