Alongside the film’s VOD release, we are launching an educational toolkit, designed to enhance healthcare professionals’ understanding of death and dying. The resource is aimed at trainee and qualified medical doctors, nurses and palliative care professionals.
The toolkit was developed with Barts Health NHS Trust QMUL, Martlets Hospice & Sussex NHS Trust, Mountbatten Hospice and St Oswald’s Hospice. We have also incorporated feedback from pilot screenings and sessions throughout 2019 involving students and practitioners reflecting on the film in classroom settings. The final toolkit has been created alongside palliative care physician and bestselling author Dr Kathryn Mannix, who also contributes an essay to the toolkit. We are grateful to Queen Mary University of London (Collaborator Award Fund) whose support enabled us to develop the ISLAND toolkit.
