Roadshow: Palliative Care Training for Volunteers

Roadshow is on its way to a community near you!

This year, the focus will be on training volunteers, caregivers, and interested community members to become a valuable part of the palliative care team. It will give volunteers the confidence to provide quality support services in any setting, whether that is in hospice, long-term care or a private home.

This no cost, two-day, in-person training follows the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association Training Program which is recognized across Canada.
