Webinar: myths in palliative care and bereavement



Helping Patients and Families Address the Myths in Palliative Care and Bereavement from CHPCA on Vimeo.
This webinar will discuss some of the many myths surrounding palliative care and bereavement:
Can you tell when someone is going to die?
Does a dying person “choose” the moment of death?
definitions
Is it true that “palliative care” means “no more hope”?
If a family member is present when death occurs, will the grief be easier?
Join us as we pursue the challenge of addressing these myths with two experienced clinicians in palliative care and grief.
