Hands on lap

A Research to Practice Webinar
Co-sponsored by the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention, and North Okanagan Hospice Society

A significant milestone has been achieved with the establishment of a consensus-driven definition for hospice societies’ care in the province. This unified definition aims to standardize terminology, providing unprecedented clarity to the public, healthcare providers, and community partners. Creating this common understanding is expected to unlock the full potential of hospice societies, ensuring their optimal use.

Additionally, this unified definition is poised to guide advocacy efforts, ultimately enhancing the quality and sustainability of care provided by hospice societies in BC. Please join us to learn more about this milestone.
