Education Opportunities

Education and Research Department has worked with VIHA since 2005 to deliver the End of Life Care workshop series - five, half-day palliative care education sessions, which are video-linked to hospices and hospitals across Vancouver Island.

We handle all education requests from educational institutions, government and community agencies and arrange instruction on a fee for service basis.

A variety of palliative care texts and tools can be purchased through our department, including the Medical Care of the Dying textbook, and Transitions in Dying and Bereavement guide to psychosocial care.

Education and Research Department manages all copyright approval requests from individuals and organizations asking to use our material from our publications and tools such as the Palliative Performance Scale or Bereavement Risk Assessment Tool.

Quality palliative and end-of-life care for all: Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing life-limiting illness, death and bereavement through patient and family centred care, education, research and advocacy.
