Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association

On #GivingTuesdayNow, the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association wants Canadians to acknowledge National Hospice Palliative Care Week. May 4th –10th, 2020 observes the twentieth annual Hospice Palliative Care Week. It is time to celebrate and share the achievements of Hospice Palliative Care throughout the nation. This year, the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) addresses myths that circulate around Hospice Palliative Care in Canada.

CHPCA has created a downloadable poster that debunks popular myths and a FAQ poster that answers some of the frequently asked questions about hospice palliative care in Canada. To continue the conversation online, social media users are invited to test their knowledge by engaging with CHPCA’s Facebook and Twitter and debunk the myths throughout the week.

This year’s #GivingTuesdayCa call to action includes the following:
·Submit articles online to ehospice.
·Volunteer with a community organization such as a walking or gardening group, your local hospice or long-term care facility, schools, community centers and other groups that provide essential services in your neighbourhood.
·Participate in your local ‘Hike for Hospice Palliative Care
·Hospice Palliative Care and Advance Care Planning: get informed about what your options are so you can focus on what’s important in your life.

Please watch our social media on #GivingTuesdayNow, May 5th, and participate in this great campaign. If you could share our posts and tweets with others to help get the word out it would be greatly appreciated!
