    Abstract

    Summary of Findings•Participation in Dying2Learn online was effective in increasing death competence, and magnitude of the effect was considerable. After the MOOC, community members perceived themselves as being better prepared to cope with death in their lives, even allowing for the initial high level of death competence shown at enrolment. Consistent with previous findings.•Improvements in death competence following completion of Dying2Learn did not vary depending on health professional experience or bereavement experience. The impact was similar for all groups.•Greater engagement in the MOOC content lead to greater improvements in death competence over time.
