Developed by City Lore and the Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation
Originally Published In 2023

The Toolkit for the public provides resources on death and dying, geared to both health professionals and the public.  It contains links to textbooks, stories, poems, cultural perspectives on death and dying, as well as compelling video clips, examples of various art forms, and “how to” information for creating various types of memorials when an individual passes away.  The Toolkit expands the opportunities for healthcare providers to enhance their skills in end-of-life care through the use of the Arts. It focuses on ways to create a culturally sensitive yet individualized environment for those at the end-of-life, using the Arts as a clinical tool for supporting patients’ beliefs, traditions, and customs in a meaningful way. It can be used alongside the 2022 Journal of Folklore and Education special issue, Death, Loss, and Remembrance.
