Creating Compassionate Communities: Building Death Literacy

June 7-8, 2018  |  Figtree Conference Centre, Olympic Park, Sydney

Compassionate Communities is a whole of community approach to end of life support where caring for one another at times of need, loss and/or crisis becomes the task and responsibility of everyone.

At the heart of this movement for change, is the adoption of a whole of community approach where formal care provision and informal support networks come together to provide support for people who are dying and grieving. 

This two day conference will bring together individuals and groups working at the threshold of innovation in the health space and in community initiatives  and who wish to develop the critical awareness and skills in:

  • Community engagement and community development
  • Social networks and capacity building
  • Partnerships and collaboration
  • Evaluating change

To make the most of your learning and networking, we encourage you to register for both days of the conference.
