Title: " Facing Death "
Although the subject of death is not easily discussed in our society, health care professionals have begun to talk more openly about death and to recognize the emotional stages brought on by an impending death. These stages -- denial, bargaining, anger, depression, and acceptance -- may be experienced in various orders and to various degrees, not only by the patient, but by relatives and health care staff as well. In this half-hour lesson, the various emotional stages are discussed by people who have life-threatening diseases. The staff of an oncology unit and the daughter of a patient also discuss their own reactions to death. The program -- a companion lesson to June Bunger: As Death Approaches -- is designed for the fields of health education, nursing, psychology and sociology.
