The Handbook of Thanatology, ADEC's
essential body of knowledge for the study of death, dying and
bereavement, is available as an online self-study course. The
second edition of the Handbook was newly published in April of 2013 and
forms the basis of the Self Study Course.
The Handbook of Thanatology Self Study Course offers online quizzes in six sections that mirror the printed handbook. Purchase and complete the quizzes online for continuing education credit or nursing contact hours. If you don't already own the Handbook of Thanatology itself, you can buy .pdf versions of its sections, or a hard copy of the entire book).
