Roadshow – Grief 101: The Fundamentals

September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Learn the foundational principles of grief to shape and influence the attitudes and values you bring to your work and everyday life.

Every palliative care team member’s role includes grief support. This workshop examines what grief support looks like, how it’s experienced, and includes a healthy (and necessary) debunking of myths and conceptions that pervade this complex topic.

The concept of grief literacy will be introduced and participants will be encouraged to consider how they can build capacity for grief support in their informal networks and communities. Participants walk away with a strong grasp of how to use the foundational principles of grief, mourning and bereavement to shape and influence the attitudes and values they bring to their work.


Kathy Kortes-Miller, MSW, PhD has a passion for palliative care and improving end of life care for all. She is an associate professor at the School of Social Work and the Director of the Centre for Education and Research on Aging and Health (CERAH) at Lakehead University. Her research is interdisciplinary and collaborative, contributing to a broad range of fields of study including: social work, thanatology, palliative care, interprofessional education, gerontology and LGBTQ+. She was a long-standing member of the board of directors for Hospice Northwest and in March 2018 published the book “Talking About Death Won’t Kill You” with ECW Press.
