TAFE Statement in Midwifing Death

TAFE NSW

Type of institution: TAFE Institute
Level: Pre-degree
CRICOS: 00591E

The TAFE course in Midwifing Death is a course designed to up-skill existing workers or aspiring new entrants in direct client care to gain training in care-taking in the final stages of life. Our aim is not to swell the ranks of health care professionals who care for the dying, but to train individuals who can journey with those who are dying while at the same time supporting and empowering grieving family and friends. We refer to these individuals as friends, companions or amici - people who are informed about and comfortable with death and who are prepared to • Journey with a dying person (family member or friend) with no agenda other than to be a companion • Hear the fears and concerns of family without the need to make things better • Advocate for the rights and legitimate choices of those who are dying • Look at their own fears, beliefs and agendas around death Some students have become palliative care volunteers and have found an outlet for their newly acquired knowledge and skills in this role. Others have managed to incorporate midwifing death principles into their chosen career, be that volunteering, counselling, social work, nursing, pastoral care or as a funeral celebrant. Many have initiated conversations within their own family about the need for them or other family members to prepare well for death. All have found these conversations to be liberating rather than morbid and it has allowed them to engage in discussions that are often avoided. What we hope, however, is that all who do the course will have a better understanding of how to midwife the death of another and the challenges they may face in doing so.
