NHS Education for Scotland has recently launched five new short animated films for healthcare professionals. Each animation deals with a different topic related to resuscitation, death, dying, end of life care and bereavement.
The resources address topics that are less commonly covered in training and aim to fill identified gaps in the availability of suitable educational materials for healthcare professionals. These new films join others including Discussing Dying, Talking to Children who are Bereaved and Discussing Authorised (Hospital) Post Mortem Examination which have previously been launched.
Each animation is accompanied on the Support around Death website by a downloadable leaflet of key learning points.
