Occupation is vital to health, throughout the entire lifespan. There are increasing numbers of people in Canada who require access to high quality palliative and end-of-life care. Occupational therapists are well positioned to contribute to the care team by providing opportunities for meaningful occupational engagement to continue during life’s end stages. This webinar will provide opportunities for OTs to learn about ways in which quality of life can be enhanced at the end of life through being attune to relationships and its role in quality care, as well as meaningful occupation. Using case examples from research conducted in a hospice setting, participants will gain greater insight into the dying experience and how quality of life is impacted by relationships at this life stage.
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
Understand the role of relationships in hospice, palliative, end-of-life care.
Understand how relationships impact quality of life for the patient and loved ones.
Apply their knowledge of end-of-life experiences to their practice settings as a result of increased awareness.
