Topics covered are strengthening listening skills, companioning the dying, impact of identity, creating a death plan, understanding signs of death, vigil process, disposition options, privilege, holding space, and advance planning. Also discussed are who has and who doesn't have access to deathcare and what role we can hold while working in these racist and biased systems that exist in the United States.
