Getting to Know Hospice Palliative Care

This course is about getting to know hospice palliative care, the palliative approach and communicating wishes about our future healthcare needs.

It is designed for people with a life-threatening diagnosis and their family and friends, as well as caregivers, students, health care providers, educators and members of the public who want to learn more.

Participants will learn about the different types of support available throughout the palliative journey, including an introduction to programs and services offered by the Delta Hospice Society located in Delta, British Columbia, Canada.
