For National Hospice Palliative Care Week, PHC’s Palliative Care team hosted a screening of Atul Gawande’s “Being Mortal” at Vancity Theatre, followed by an expert Q&A panel.
With over 140 people in attendance, many shared personal stories of their experience with death, dying, and having to make decisions on another’s behalf.
Caption: It was a full house!
The audience was keen to ask the panel how to begin to normalize these conversations both within our own communities and within health care.
Caption: (l to r) The expert panel consisted of Dr. Gil Kimel, director, Palliative Care Program; Wallace Robinson, leader, Advanced Care Planning; Pat Richardson; Jenny Young, ethicist, PHC, and Stefan Pauer, who is a patient and family representative with PHC.
Many thanks to St. Paul’s Foundation for your support of this event.
