Changing the way that doctors learn to care for people who are dying

  • Roderick Macleod

    Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


    This collection of work represents an interest in education in palliative care over the last ten years. These papers are written either by myself or in collaboration with colleagues in Britain and New Zealand. During those years the way in which palliative care is taught and learned has changed and continues to change. The overview of the work submitted here describes the rationale behind the development of new approaches to the teaching and learning of care at the end of life. In many ways this collection represents a personal journey - one that involves investigation, growth, research and evaluation. By publishing these papers and promoting discussion in this area of education I have made an original contribution to the changing way in which doctors are taught and learn to care for people who are dying and into our understanding of the nature of learning to care for those people.The papers are listed here in chronological order. Throughout the text of the overview they are referenced along with other relevant papers but appear in the reference list in bold. I declare that I am the author of the papers contained in thesis unless otherwise stated. All references documented have been consulted in the writing of these papers. References appear in the texts in the form required for each individual journal. The papers have all been published in peer reviewed journals.
