Module 02 Discussion – Death and Dying


Discuss the term “clinical death,” especially with respect to when not to initiate CPR. Discuss what is meant by a “peaceful death” and a “good death,” including goals for End-Of-Life care. How would you feel if you knew your patients did not want CPR but the family insisted on it?

Please make an initial post by midweek, and respond to at least two other student’s posts with substantial details that demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and critical thinking. Remember that your posts must exhibit appropriate writing mechanics including using proper language, cordiality, and proper grammar and punctuation. If you refer to any outside sources or reference materials, be sure to provide proper attribution and/or citation.
