Five new animated films have been produced by NES Scotland to support staff providing end of life and bereavement care. Each animation deals with a different topic related to resuscitation, death, dying, end of life care and bereavement. The animations demonstrate how clinicians and other health and social care professionals can lead potentially difficult conversations with patients and families with more confidence
Although the films are openly accessible they were not designed for the general public so the Support around Death website also provides links to alternative sources of information and support.
The animations, which cover topics such as resuscitation and talking to people who have experienced a bereavement, are designed to address any gaps in training provision in supporting patients, families and carers.
All of the films can be accessed from the Support around Death website www.sad.scot.nhs.uk
