Psychosocial-Spiritual Alberta Series

May 16, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


As a Pallium Canada ECHO hub partner, the Covenant Health Palliative Institute is pleased to announce a new series for psychosocial-spiritual professionals working in palliative and grief care.

Psychosocial-Spiritual Alberta Series
Are you a professional who provides psychosocial-spiritual care to palliative patients, families, and the bereaved in Alberta? Developed with Alberta content, the Psychosocial-Spiritual Alberta Series is open to social workers, spiritual care providers, creative arts therapists, occupational therapists, counsellors, psychologists, and other clinicians providing direct emotional and spiritual support. The topics explored will be relevant to emotional, spiritual, and grief support in palliative care and bereavement as well as self-care for clinicians. This is a great opportunity to build connections and deepen your knowledge. We ask that you commit to attending as much of the series as possible.

Session 6: Non-physical Suffering: Challenges and Opportunities for Psychosocial/Spiritual Care Specialists
The prevention and relief of suffering, physical and non-physical, is a primary aim of palliative care. This session will provide space for participants to reflect on their own experiences working with patients’ non-physical suffering, increase their understanding of this form of suffering, and offer research-informed insights to support clinical practice.
• Thursday, May 16, 2024, 12 – 1 pm Mountain Time
