National Hospice Palliative Care Week
National Hospice Palliative Care Week 2014 is taking place May 4-10, 2014.
National Hospice Palliative Care Week will run from May 5th to 11th, 2013 under the theme, "Canadians are aging. We've done the math. Have you?" This year we hope to encourage professionals, caregivers, and the general public to advocate for better hospice palliative care...especially with the population aging at the rate that it is.
Together we can encourage the government improve access to hospice palliative care in Canada. Have you done your part?
Please share your National Hospice Palliative Care Week events with us here. Events that have been held in the past include: displays, workshops, information sessions, networking with provincial and federal level politicians, etc. This is a great occasion for you to introduce to your community the wonderful individuals in your organization who strive to provide Canadians facing death with the care they deserve.
In 2012, we presented the first ever National Hospice Palliative Care Week Online Event, "Teamwork: the sum is greater than the parts." To view the recording of this event, please click here. We will be presenting another online event related to our 2013 theme, more details to come shortly!
