Semester 2 unit: Dementia, Palliative Care and End-of-Life Care

Dr Lynn Moresi and team

Explore the nature and practice of pastoral care in the context of dementia, palliative care, and end-of-life care. This is a unit for those interested in or currently working as pastoral carers, spiritual carers, ministers, or chaplains. Focused theological input, case study analysis, peer reflection and practitioner insight will engage participants as they review their own practice and develop their own theological frameworks. The unit will consider the social determinants of health in Australia today and critique individual and corporate pastoral care responses. Drawing on recent theological, spiritual care and healthcare literature, participants will consider what promotes health and spiritual wellbeing in the context of dementia and palliative care.
