Conversations Unplugged with the Interdisciplinary Research Lab in Palliative and End of Life Care—Living with Dying
March 1 at 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Hosted by the Interdisciplinary Research Lab in Palliative and End of Life Care, University of British Columbia Okanagan and Co-supported by the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention, University of British Columbia Okanagan, join us for a frank conversation about what it’s like to live with serious illness.
A researcher who lives with a life-limiting illness and a physician with more than 30 years of experience caring for people at the end-of-life will share their perspectives on living with dying.
Panelists will respond to questions about their experiences and will welcome questions from the audience.
This open conversation will cover a range of topics such as career pathways, and the role of research to inform care and support roles for friends, family, and clinical professionals who care for people with life-limiting illnesses. You’ll gain insight and learn practical skills about how you can support people in your life who live with serious illness.
Free and open to the UBCO campus community. Students are encouraged to attend.
Light snacks will be provided.
