Event description
Spreading Compassionate Communities in BC

About this Event

People feel empowered to engage with and increase their understanding about the experiences of those living with a serious illness, caregiving, dying and grieving. Community members take an active role in caring for people, assist people to live comfortably in their homes, connect people to supports, raise awareness about end of life issues, and develop the capacity of others in the community.

Delivered by the BC Centre for Palliative Care, this interactive workshop will introduce the concept of Compassionate Communities (CC), provide examples of CC initiatives in other parts of the world, and present case studies of doable CC projects in B.C. Participants will be introduced to the Compassionate Communities Resources toolkit - developed by the BC Centre for Palliative Care in partnership with Kalein Centre - and explore ways community-based organizations can create and or enhance a compassionate community.

Please register only one (1) person's name at a time to ensure each participant receives the workshop materials.
