  • Comment on: Seeing a dead body for the first time: The calming effect of performing last offices

    Tracie Jones's comment 1 April, 2014 1:48 pm

    Hi Emma
    I am just at the end of my 2nd year, I had experienced death in my personal life but not had the privilege of under taking last offices until last week.

    Like you I spoke to my patient all the way through the process of washing and dressing, I am sure the other student with me thought that I was `crackers`! but I found that it really helped me.

    I am a firm believer in respect and dignity being shown right through to the very last moment. I know that I did this and will never be afraid again.

    Good luck with you training Emma

    I am a `very mature` 1st year student, I will be going out on my first placement on the 29th Ocober, so excited but nervous! Rang the ward last week and payed a visit yesterday, everyone was so nice and helpful, really hope I`m going to do ok! Just worried if I make mistakes.

    This is a really helpful article thank you.

    I am on my 2nd year of Access to Health course (whilst also working full time with a demanding family!) and hope to be starting Uni in September 2012.

    When I attended one particular Uni open day, the adviser gave me some excellent tips, such as: being aware of `leaving my husband behind` whilst working towards my dream. After sitting down and explaining what my time at uni will involve things have been much easier and I don`t feel as guilty now about the time I am going to be spending on assignments and placements.

    Good luck to all.
