The Sisterhood of Widows – by Mary Francis

Our Story - Notre Histoire

The CHPCA is the national voice for Hospice Palliative Care in Canada. Advancing and advocating for quality end-of-life/hospice palliative care in Canada, its work includes public policy, public education and awareness. Established in 1991, its volunteer Board of Directors is composed of hospice palliative care workers and volunteers from Canadian provinces and territories as well as members-at-large.

The Canadian Palliative Care Association (CPCA) was formally established as a national charitable organization in November 1991 and opened the first office in Ottawa in February 1994. The association’s first newsletter “AVISO” was published in both official languages in June, 1992.

Today, the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association is the national voice for hospice palliative care in Canada. It is a national charitable non-profit association whose mission is to provide leadership in hospice palliative care in Canada. We strive to achieve this mission by supporting research, promoting education and training, improving public awareness of hospice palliative care, and by advocating for increased programs and services. CHPCA works in close partnership with other national organizations and will continue to move forward with the goal of ensuring that all Canadians, regardless of where they may live, have equal access to quality hospice palliative care for themselves and their family.

A magnificent talk. Worth listening.
Hi Everyone my name is Kate Davis and I have recently started a podcast called "So now you are dying, what are you doing to live?” which takes an intimate look at the two things that are most feared and stigmatized in our society, terminal illness and death and the ways people are experiencing and embracing them. Terminal illness and death are kept so separate from our day-to-day lives and yet it is something we are all going to face… our own mortality. This podcast hopes to shed some light on the experience from people who are going through it and to enlighten, share and help educate a broad audience. I am hoping to find guests for the show. I have taped some and it's a great legacy for the families as well. If you know of anyone who might be interested in participating and sharing their story please DM me and I can send more information. Warmest, Kate
Reserve your spot!
Dear CHPCA, Thank you for the work you do especially now. You have kindly hosted me at the conference and let me present my research poster on what kids need to know after a parent dies. I have been getting so many helpline calls from around the world, and my father in law died a few months back, that I am writing a covid-aware grief book for young people. Please do tell members about it, especially the option of having a personal logo on the back if you like or a book with a dedication printed inside on all first edition copies. With a background in counselling and education and having staffed the helpline for years, I want to make the very best grief book possible! I am also giving half of any profits I make to foodbank. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mylovelyonebook/my-lovely-one-a-loving-grief-book-for-kids?ref=user_menu Warmly, gratefully, Gaby Eirew, (of RecordMeNow legacy app)
Hello! The Sunshine Coast Hospice Society has been hosting an online auction this week in support of compassionate end-of-life and bereavement care in our community. We have over 100 great items, including outdoor activities, lessons and classes, tools, home services, artwork, and more! To support our auction, register to bid at www.coasthospice.com. The auction closes on Sunday, July 26 at 9:30 PM. For any questions related to this event, please contact me at [email protected]. Thank you! :)
I would like to share with you the news that the book "The Art of Accompaniment" (Tools and Practices for personal and spiritual accompaniment in palliative care and physical end-of-life " is available in English (both in ebook and on paper) We hope it will be a helpful tool to accompany others in significant moments.
A warm hello! I’m gathering some research for Mind Over Chatter Guided Meditation, my guided mindfulness meditation business. I work with people leaders and administrators whose employees are at high risk for compassion fatigue. They’re genuinely concerned for their employees’ mental wellbeing and are looking for cost-effective ways to prevent physical and emotional exhaustion and a lessened ability to empathize. I’m looking for people who match this description to answer a few survey questions for me. If this sounds like you or someone you know, would you kindly complete and/or share my short survey? I want to make sure that the package I’m creating is on track with where this type of people leader is at. If they prefer, their answers can be totally confidential. Here is the link to the survey: https://forms.gle/MRTWeLzNFG92KyuX6 With sincere thanks and warm wishes, Tanya Ross Certified Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator Mind Over Chatter Guided Meditation 647-505-0387
Former hospice nurse Yvonne Heath's recent TEDx talk provides some excellent examples of what it looks and feels like to "just show up" for those who are grieving. A terrific resource for anyone who wonders what to do and say in the face of loss:
Is there a Canadian National Hospice Month?
Any ressources regarding thromboprophylaxia in palliative care patient? I'm hospital based with some pt still receiving very active care (IV atb, blood transfusion, surgery, etc) and some at the very end of their life. Thank you!
