CHP 692 OL - Understanding the Scope of Perspectives and Ministry in MAiD

3 Credits

Offered occasionally

This course will give a basic understanding of End-of-Life Care and Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). Participants will increase awareness of patient, family, and healthcare worker perspectives and build skills for coming alongside pastorally. The understanding of Scripture, theological and denominational positions on MAiD will be considered as one develops a pastoral position for response. Of particular interest to denominational leaders and those who counsel pastoral caregivers will be the lessons on Postvention Care and the information on how to support ministering individuals impacted by another’s decision for MAiD.
