Effective Communication with Seniors

1 Hrs
Communication is an essential aspect of life; yet, it can be taken for granted. Its centrality to being in the world and in professional practice often becomes evident when a provider and older adults encounter communication difficulties. The factors that can affect providers’ communication with older adults relate to sociocultural considerations, the environment, as well as the interactions between these factors. When communicating with older adults, it is necessary to get to know the person as an individual. It is also important to ensure that the communication meets their needs and abilities. Effective communication is essential and requires competence and engagement.

Military and Line of Duty Death Services

3 Hrs
When a member of the Military is killed in action, the death can be a tragic and devastating loss for the family, the comrades, the friends, and the country.

The funeral service for a person killed in action or in the line of duty can be more detailed and complex than other funeral arrangements. This course is designed to aid funeral directors in understanding many of the honors and traditions used in these types of service. The content of this course will include the origin and symbolism of many funeral honors observed, discuss the detailed planning required to properly arrange these types of services, and serve in preparing directors to serve the ones affected by Military and Line of Duty Deaths.

Opioids: Contributing to Both Health and Death

2 Hrs
Opioids are pain relievers administered through prescriptions. When someone takes too many opioids or reaches a tolerance threshold, an overdose occurs. With the increase of opioid deaths in the United States, it is imperative that the death-care industry recognizes and respects the hidden dangers. The funeral arrangements, visitation, and funeral can be complicated because of the circumstances surrounding the death. Opioids can affect the vessels and tissues of the body and cause embalming issues for embalmers. Funeral directors and embalmers need to be aware of safety procedures before embalming and to incorporate strict personal protective equipment. There are different embalming techniques for embalming an individual who was on opioids at the time of death as well as those who have overdosed on opioids. This course will also describe strategies to help combat overdoses in the funeral home.

Talking with Children About Death

2 Hrs
Death is one of life’s certainties and yet it is also its greatest uncertainty, and children, at a young age, become cognizant of mortality. Some children face significant losses such as the death of a parent or sibling that are dramatic and life-changing.  Children experience and work through the same broad range of emotions that an adult does. Conversely, children are still developing both emotionally and cognitively and therefore are unable to express grief in the same way an adult does. For this reason, coping skills are limited and the need for education and guidance is necessary to support a child in identifying and moving through their own complex feelings.
