The Professional End of Life Coaching program is designed to train and qualify students as Professional End of Life Coaches. An End-of-Life Coach is trained and certified to provide coaching to individuals, families, and groups in all aspects of end of life including all the duties performed by a death doula. Throughout the training students will develop and practice the eight core competencies as defined by the International Coaching Federation. Learners will understand the use of ethical guidelines, professional standards and learn how to create trusting and respectful coaching relationships as they open and close coach-client relationships.
Demand for End of Life Coaching Professionals
Many hospices throughout the province and the country have reported a significant increase in the demand for their support, outstripping their ability to provide both professional and volunteer services in a timely fashion. The same holds true for local community service agencies who also have been pressed to meet the demands for evolving community services regarding end of life given the increase in drug overdoses and suicides, particularly amongst the youth.
Rhodes Wellness College has recognized the significant need for well-educated, well-trained professionals who will be required to meet the end of life needs of a rapidly ageing population The college has also recognized that supporting and preparing families for an expected death in the family home will be essential for the inevitable increase in home deaths.
It is recognized that community-based education programs focusing on neighbours helping neighbours at the end-of-life is paramount. The End-of-Life Coaching Program is designed with all of this in mind and is focused on providing trained End of Life Coaches to the community service agencies and hospice societies that provide residents with the much-needed support.
This program is pending approval by the Registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training.
