Death Literacy is defined as the knowledge and skills that people need to make it possible to gain access to, understand, and make informed choices about end of life and death care options. 

People and communities with high levels of death literacy can put this knowledge into practice. This presentation will invite you to consider the concept of death literacy and how it might apply to your setting and provide a strengths-based framework for supporting patients, families, and their communities. This will include information about the Death Literacy Index, its development and its use.
