As a part of National Palliative Care Week the Council on Palliative Care will present a free virtual workshop on Tuesday May 3rd, at 4pm PST.

Presentation by Dr. Tamara Sussman is an Associate Professor with the School of Social Work at McGill University. Her research focuses older persons’ and family/friend caregivers’ experiences with and access to in-home community supports and long-term care homes. Her recent projects center on the development and testing of strategies to improve advance care planning engagement between older persons and their families across the continuum of care. Dr. Sussman aims to conduct research that can be used to improve health policies, processes, and practices by working closely with community partners.
