Event Description

Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC) is pleased to run an educational conference focused on palliative care in Scarborough. This year's conference focuses on the theme “Talking About Death Won’t Kill Us” with an overarching theme of humanizing advance care planning with care and dignity.

The “D” word – Death, is an inevitable human experience. In many ways, like love, it shows no boundaries and displays no prejudice. Death, when discussed, prepared for and embraced, has potential to elicit a meaningful and lifelong impact. How do you perceive death? Do you pull away or embrace it as a transformational experience? Join us at our annual palliative care conference, as we discuss normalizing death for a death-avoidant society. We look forward to engaging you in insightful conversations on embracing and responding to the experience of death and dying that will have you leaving empowered and stronger to engage, support and walk with someone who is dying.

The education will be delivered in interactive keynote presentations, teambuilding and breakout rooms. The audience is comprised of individuals who are interested in enhancing their knowledge on palliative care.

Organizer The Scarborough Centre For Healthy Communities

Organizer of SCHC Palliative Education Annual Conference

Originally founded as West Hill Community Services in 1977, Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC) is one of the most established and comprehensive community health organizations in the province. The organization owes its beginnings to 13 community agencies, a core group of community leaders and countless volunteers who identified emerging health and social needs within Scarborough.

After incorporating and acquiring not-for-profit status, SCHC built on the initial services of our Meals-on-Wheels, home support, transportation and family support programs.  After a successful rebranding campaign, we employ over 155 staff, engage over 650 volunteers and operate 38 distinct and integrated services across 11 sites that work together to improve the health of our community.  We provide medical assistance through our clinics, are involved in a growing youth program and have a multitude of social support programs including a food bank.
