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

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 skill 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 care givers will be the lessons on Postvention Care and the information on how to support ministering individuals impacted by another’s decision for MAiD.

There is also an opportunity to audit this course or participate in a small group. When one individual registers for credit or audit (which includes full access to all course content through the Moodle platform), others can join in and form a group at the rate of $40 each, which will include a resource and discussion guide. Those who register for credit or audit will also have the ability to screen share the course video lectures to others in a small group setting, either virtually or in-person.
