2021 Theme: My Grief - Your Grief – Our Grief:

Grieving Together in Times of Loss

 

“Ensuring that the needs and wishes of each person with a life-limiting illness and their family are understood”

Grief is a response to our many losses – losses arising from deaths of significant people in our lives, as well as other important life transitions, including losses of opportunities, relationships, employment, and social connections.
 

Grief is a unique experience that affects many dimensions of a person’s life – emotionally, socially, spiritually, and physically. There is no one way to grieve.

However, grief is also a universal experience. During this past year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all experienced significant losses. There are many ways to connect our personal grief experiences with the grief
experiences of others - within our relationships, our work settings, and our communities. There is so much that we can learn from each other.

 

We hope that you will take the opportunity to attend in October
and get involved in discussions about diverse grief experiences
and learnings across a range of topics, during keynote
presentations and breakout sessions.
