Event description

Description

Join an interactive discussion about advanced care planning (naming someone to speak for you and talking about your values with your family and healthcare team members so that they are prepared if they ever have to make decisions on your behalf). The Division of Palliative Medicine research program currently focuses on advance care planning and health services research. Dr. Jessica Simon and Dr. Neil Hagen (Professor Emeritus) are co-leads with Dr. Konrad Fassbender at University of Alberta on an AIHS CRIO Program “Advance Care Planning and Goals of Care Alberta: A Population Based Knowledge Translation Intervention Study”.

Dr. Jessica Simon, Division Head

The Division of Palliative Medicine works hand-in-hand with the palliative and end of life care service of Alberta Health Services Calgary Zone. Our mission is to support comprehensive, integrated, community-focused palliative care via research and educational excellence. This is a growing division, currently with 26 members.

We are committed to providing life-affirming care and the management of suffering associated with life-limiting conditions, meeting the manpower needs for Palliative Medicine consultants for the Calgary Zone, supporting education in palliative care for primary providers, including rural physicians, nurses and others, and conducting clinical and health services research, with emphasis on evaluating and optimizing care delivery.
