Sessions will be running from June 2023 to December 2023.
This community of practice (COP) creates a space for healthcare professionals, systems leaders, spiritual care practitioners, and psychospiritual therapists to come together and deepen their understanding of spirituality in palliative and bereavement care.
This series will help build on foundational knowledge they’ve acquired and allow them to share and communicate their experiences and support each other’s understanding and caring for the spiritual needs of palliative and bereavement care clients, friends and families.
