Handbook of Thanatology Self Study Course
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 published in April of 2013 and
forms the basis of the Self Study Course.
The Handbook of Thanatology Self
Study Course is a self-assessment that 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).
Each of the six sections of the Self Study
Course contains a quiz that corresponds to the appropriate chapters for that section, and which the learner must
pass to earn credit for that section. Learners can earn continuing
education credits or nursing contact hours. Purchase individual sections
or a package of all six sections at once.
When a section of quizzes is purchased and accessed, both options of CE/CT/FT credit or nursing credit* will be available to the learner to choose from.
CE credits available
(and contact hours towards
Certification in Thanatology): 18 (3 per section)
A learner is allowed two attempts to take and pass
each section quiz. At the end of each quiz, you will be able to review your answers. After passing each section, you will be able to print your certificate with credit. Overall score for the
entire section will be calculated based on a pass/fail rate of 75%.
Access your purchased quizzes in the My Online Learning portal.
