AHPCA Roadshow – High River
April 29 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Scared to Death of Death is a full-day workshop.
We live in a death-denying culture. While most people grudgingly admit that they are aware of their own eventual death, death remains something rarely discussed. Continued improvements in medical technology fuel temptation to ignore its limits, create a defiant attitude about death and dying, and suggest a failure when death eventually occurs.
Presenters, Blair Collins, grief counsellor and life coach, and Darrin Parkin, spiritual care clinician, will examine:
The various factors that have influenced our cultural denial and vilification of death
The importance of personal meaning-making and spirituality as we reflect on our own individual mortality
What the dying have to teach us about living
The insights of palliative care as a way of removing the dread around death
Accepting mortality as an integral part of the human experience, and how that might impact the practice of medicine
