HSDA 4170 - Decisions at the End-of-Life


An introduction to helping families cope with decision making in old age, including advance directives (health care surrogates, proxies, power of attorney for health care), health care decision making, hospice care, and other issues (i.e. living alone, driving, finances). This course will introduce the lifespan development and the final stages of death and dying. Students will compare and contract historical and modern attitudes toward death and dying found in literature, rituals, religion, philosophy, film, medical-legal issues, and in the process clarify their attitudes and values.
