Let’s bust the myths about Hospice Palliative Care!
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 (CanadianHospicePalliativeCare) and Twitter (@CanadianHPCAssn) and debunk the myths throughout the week.
