Fully Funded Canadian Serious Illness Conversation Education Opportunity






About the Training

We are pleased to share with you that the Ontario Health West Region Palliative Care Network (OH WRPCN) is sponsoring a fully funded palliative care education opportunity to primary care providers across the West region. The education being offered is called Canadian Serious Illness Conversations (CSIC) and is being provided through Pallium Canada. In receiving this communication, we ask that you share and distribute this message, with the attached brochure, to primary care providers employed within your organization.

This education supports, and is in alignment with, the OH WRPCN strategy to further the implementation of the Model of Care for Adults receiving Palliative Care in the Community and the Ontario Palliative Care Network’s (OPCN’s) Competency framework.

Target Audience

The Canadian Serious Illness Conversations course is designed to provide health care professionals with the tools and knowledge needed to effectively use the Serious Illness Conversations Guide to have compassionate and effective conversations with patients and their families dealing with serious illnesses. The Guide provides a framework for best communication practices and supports clinicians to engage sooner and more frequently with patients.

The target audience for CSIC for winter is, Primary Care (community based), HCCSS CC’s, SPO’s contracted by HCCSS, SPO’s that support Indigenous Communities, and Community Paramedicine
