Session took place on January 19, 2023
Presented by the Northwest Regional Palliative Care Program, Lakehead University’s Centre for Education and Research on Aging & Health, and Pallium Canada.
In response to the need for community caregiver education in Indigenous communities, the CERAH curriculum development team created the Walking Alongside Indigenous Peoples who are Seriously Ill: Education for Community Caregivers curriculum.
In this session, participants learned more about improving the capacity of health and social care providers in Indigenous communities to provide education and support to families and community members who are caring for loved ones with life-limiting illnesses.
