Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 20
  • Minimum of 2 scholarly sources (in addition to course text )

InstructionsAs we explored this week, late adulthood is a dynamic, rich time of life with many transitions and times of both growth and loss. One of the most profound experiences in late adulthood is that of death and dying – both our own death and the loss of loved ones. In our readings this week, we learned about how important cultural contexts are in understanding the death and dying process. As current/future healthcare professionals, having an understanding of how others process death and grief is key to being able to provide quality support and care. For our final assignment for this class, you will be reflecting on the following scenarios.

Part I: Imagine…you are 77 years old. You have lived a happy, fulfilling life, but have recently learned you have terminal cancer and are reflecting on how you want to spend your last few months and what you would like for your final wishes. In 1-2 pages, describe what you would like this last chapter of your life to look like. Consider:

  • What is your cultural heritage? What cultural traditions do you or your family hold that would impact your dying process and last wishes? (i.e. I’m Irish and my family and cultural heritage view death as a time to celebrate the life of a loved one with a long Irish wake, stories about our loved one, laughter, etc. We view funerals as a time to be very emotionally expressive about our loss).
  • How does your family communicate about or view death? What impact does communication with loved ones have on the death and dying process?

Part II: Imagine…you are a nurse, social worker, hospice volunteer or other healthcare professional working with a 77-year-old terminal cancer patient who is struggling with her end of life decisions. She is stoic and hard-working. Her culture values privacy and independence. She doesn’t wish to burden her family and so changes the subject anytime her children try to broach the topic of her final wishes, taking care of her house/pets, her will, etc. She becomes uncomfortable anytime you or other care providers ask to discuss her wishes on things such as DNR orders, religious wishes, or final arrangements. Her children are concerned about her and are worried they don’t know how to best fulfill her wishes and are imploring you to help. In 1-2 pages, consider:

  • How might your own views on death and dying impact your work with this patient?
  • How might you seek to guide or help this patient and her family through this time?
  • What cultural context might be at work here to consider?

Remember, as you reflect on these topics, connect your own experiences and ideas to the theory and research we are learning about in class, referencing your text and at least two other sources.

Writing Requirements (APA format)

  • Length: 3-4 pages (not including title page or references page)
  • 1-inch margins
  • Double spaced
  • 12-point Times New Roman font
  • Title page
  • References page (minimum of 2 outside scholarly sources in addition to course text

INSTRUCTIONS:

For this assignment, you are to ponder some reflection questions before listening to the lecture component. These questions aim to stimulate your thinking and focus your concentration on the topics to be explored in the lecture, as a means of provoking you into thinking philosophically while you attentively listen to the lecture. There will be multiple topics, but do not respond to them all. Rather, pick one topic to respond to that catches your attention or that you otherwise find intriguing. After you have selected your topic, spend 10 minutes pondering the topic’s questions and recording your thoughts. The reason for there being multiple questions within a topic is to assist with developing a response that has depth. For this assignment, do not be concerned about the number of thoughts you have on the topic. Rather, you should be concerned with the quality of your thoughts. In assessing your response, the teaching team will look to see how clearly and precisely you articulate your beliefs and how deeply you explain the reasoning for and assumptions underlying your beliefs. Here are the topics for you to consider:

REFLECTION TOPICS:

Topic #1: Different religions and spiritual traditions make vastly different claims about spiritual truth and the practices necessary to achieve spiritual goals. For example, Christianity and Hinduism make substantively different claims about the nature of reality and how to achieve spiritual liberation. Even within Christianity, different denominations and sects disagree about the nature of God and the path to salvation. As a result, how can we know which religion, sect, or tradition is right? What criteria can we use to determine who is telling the truth? As you articulate your position, clearly explain the reasoning for your position, and if appropriate provide a concrete real-life example that illustrates your position.

Topic #2: Does your sense of causation (cause-and-effect) influence your understanding of how pain and suffering come about in your life? Put another way, does your sense of how events in your life are caused relate to your understanding of how pain and suffering arise in your experiences? How so? Further, does this link between causation of life’s events and the experience of pain and suffering provide an understanding of how you might reduce the frequency of pain and suffering in your life? Why or why not? As you articulate your position, clearly explain the reasoning for your position, and if appropriate provide a concrete real-life example that illustrates your position. 

Topic #3: When engaging in mundane daily tasks, such as eating, walking, breathing, or brushing your teeth, how often do you engage in them with full awareness and concentration? For example, when walking, how often do you catch yourself being aware of each step you take, each part of your foot touching the ground? Do you think it would improve the quality of your life if your mind were to be fully engaged in each task and activity as you undertake it each day? Why or why not? As you articulate your position, clearly explain the reasoning for your position, and if appropriate provide a concrete real-life example that illustrates your position.

GRADING POLICY:

There will be a total of 12 reflections; the two lowest scores will be dropped when calculating the final grade. This results in 10 reflections, each being worth 4% of your final grade. 6 reflections will be graded as credit/no credit and 6 reflections will be graded according to the rubric. You will not know in advance which reflections will be graded credit/no credit and which reflections will be graded with the rubric; as such, reflections should be completed with the expectation that the rubric could be used.
