First Nations Community Workshops
Palliative Manitoba offers a customized Compassionate Care Course upon request by Manitoba First Nations Communities. Modeled after our Compassionate Care Course for Volunteers, this two-and-a-half-day workshop is customized to fit the needs of the individual community. The course is designed to address the essentials of palliative care, but is modified to meet the needs of the First Nation Community. Participants are given the opportunity to share stories and experiences around death and dying as they relate to their own community.
To accommodate the unique challenges of each community, this course is co-created with health professionals, elders, and community members to ensure a culturally safe course for all participants.
This course is available at the request of community leaders/members.
