UPCOMING EVENTS

TUESDAY APRIL 16, 2019 is NATIONAL ADVANCE CARE PLANNING DAY!

Join us for two educational opportunities:

'Go Wish’ Showcase
Tuesday, April 16, 2019

9:30-11:00 AM
NOHS Boardroom

Come and play a card game with us! Go Wish gives you an easy, even entertaining way to talk about what is most important to you. The cards help you find words to talk about what is important if you were to be living a life that may be shortened by serious illness. Playing the game with your relatives or best friends can help you learn how you can best comfort your loved ones when they need you most. Go Wish can be played by one, two or more people.


Attend our FREE WEBINAR: More, better and earlier conversations: Promoting Advance Care Planning in the community and with the health care team

Tuesday, April 16, 2019
1:00 - 2:00 PM
NOHS Boardroom

Most Canadians want a voice in decisions about their health care, but need support to plan for a time when they may not be able to make decisions for themselves. Advance Care Planning (ACP) education sessions for the public begin the process where people think about and share values, beliefs and wishes for future health and personal care. The Serious Illness Conversation (SIC) initiative supports clinician-led discussions about goals and priorities with individuals facing a life limiting illness to enable goal concordant care.

To take part in either the Go Wish showcase and/or the live webinar, please reserve your seat by contacting phyllis@nohs.ca or call 250-503-1800 ext 101. Everyone is welcome!
