The CSPCP recommends that education (such as the Methadone4Pain course from Canadian Virtual Hospice) should be mandated in each province or territory as a criterion for prescribing Methadone. The CSPCP sent letters to the federal, provincial and territorial Ministers of Health and to provincial and territorial regulatory bodies.
One of the Missions in the CSPCP’s Vision, Mission and Goals is to “Advance the quality of life of patients and families living with life-limiting conditions from time of diagnosis through death and bereavement by advancing the field of palliative medicine.”
The CSPCP is proud to participate in Canada’s First National Bereavement Day on November 21, 2017, organized by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA). We encourage all physicians to join us in using the tools and materials on CHPCA National Bereavement Day website and in using the official hashtag #GriefDayCA2017 to promote the day on social media.
On National Bereavement Day, Canadian Virtual Hospice (CVH) will release new materials for supporting children and youth – “KidsGrief”. To be notified when the site goes live, enter your email at http://KidsGrief.ca.
CVH is providing a FREE public web forum called KidsGrief Q&A on November 16 from 2:00 – 3:00 EST. Andrea Warnick, a national children’s grief expert, will answer questions about supporting children and youth who are grieving a death or an expected death.
