End-of-Life Literacy Training

For Professionals, Family, Caregivers, & Volunteers
The Problem:
U.S. Census Bureau reports that "between 2020 and 2050, the number of deaths is projected to rise substantially as the population ages and a significant share of the population, the baby boomers, age into older adulthood."The enormous pressure this places on present health and death care systems requires innovative solutions to help.

The Solution:
YOU are the solution! The new role of the End-of-Life Doula is the solution. If you are reading this, you have a desire to make things better. We are here to guide your exploration, teach you all we know, honor the wisdom we all share and support you every step of the way.
Study From Anywhere! Work at Your Own Pace.

My work is dedicated to my mom.

“Even though I was a hospice nurse when my own mother was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, we all were unprepared for her sudden illness and death within 5 weeks of diagnosis.  What I created for her as we let her go is what I share with you in this program. Every family should have this kind of support. I teach you all I have here.”  ~ Deanna

Student Testimonials:
"Working with you has helped me to align myself with that feels right to me in this work. You confirmed in me what my passions and gifts are. Getting validation from someone with your knowledge and experience in this field has changed me forever. I truly mean that. I now know 100% what my purpose is. Thank you for all of your time and the energy you put into this program. You are changing lives."
- Tiffany R.
"I cannot thank you enough....Coming into the program I was very clear on what I believed my direction with End of Life work was. However, very shortly into the program with your guidance, intuition and foresight I was able to clarify and focus my true hearts calling. This program not only gave me the opportunity to communicate and connect with others of like mind, but to expand on the tools needed to clarify my calling."
- Cynthia B.
"I have learned that despite my inner fears and insecurities, I am innately ready to support the dying and their loved ones. I have felt the ability and strength to do this work most of my adult life but now, after taking this beautifully designed course, I know I was made to do it. It’s like all of my experiences, struggles, abilities, strengths, lessons, interests, so many facets of me point directly to me doing this work. I’ve had the tools the whole time, but your experience and direction has offered a structure to put all the technical details in order. I’ve mentioned before that I am not a technical person so this course has helped me tremendously. I feel I have a foundation to build upon now rather than standing in a murky pond knowing what I need lies beneath the surface but not able to see it. It’s so much clearer now. It gives me great comfort knowing I have the section material and my responses at my finger tips for reference to easily and often refresh myself.
- Sara W.
"You are 'real', down to earth and enlightened; I am drawn to those qualities and I know these are ultimately a great part of your success in this field! I strive to create change in this emerging 'grassroots' area of life and death. Death is just as much a part of life as is birth. I am humbled to be in your 'arena' Deanna, Thank you."
- June Fitzpatrick, Hospice RN

Deanna Cochran, RN, End-of-Life Doula Mentor & Trainer
"It has been my highest honor serving the dying and their families through hospice nursing since 2000, and in private practice as an End-of-Life Doula since 2005. Through my leadership activities as first Chair of NHPCO’s End-of-Life Doula Advisory Council, I am excited to be a part of bringing this new role to hospices and palliative care organizations around the country.

As a founding member and 1st Vice President of the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance, it has been my joy to bring standards to this role in the professional arena and create an understanding of how we may empower all to die well in this modern age. Many years in the making, it is beautiful to witness my bestselling book, “Accompanying the Dying: Practical Heart-Centered Wisdom for End-of-Life Doulas and Healthcare Advocates,” guide families and practitioners through the advanced illness through early bereavement time period.

Our programs support our free education and my dedication to ensuring people have equal access to the information and guidance to care for each other through dying. Know that your study with me supports dying well all around the world. You will learn to Serve Others in 'The Doula Way.'"
