Cemetery management professionals in Australia today find themselves in a hugely complex environment. They must balance a wide range of legislative and regulatory requirements stipulated by governments in relation to safe interment of the deceased, balance budgets despite no government funding, while managing the needs of grieving clients sensitively. This includes understanding and catering for a diverse range of cultural and religious beliefs and practice around death, interment and grieving, in a multi-cultural society. At the same time, cemeteries are often sites of heritage & environmental importance, which needs to be managed on behalf of the community.

This unit introduces these broad challenges, and provides a framework for developing the appropriate sensitivity to enable students to more effectively manage these challenges.
