Benjamin Franklin famously said that, in life, “nothing is certain but death and taxes”. With tax time well behind us for this year, the Canadian Medical Association is encouraging a national dialogue on that other inevitability of life: death. Their report, End-of-life care: A national dialogue documents opinions shared, not only by physicians, but also by members of the community at large through a series of public town hall meetings and online chats.
Students in many of Mohawk’s Health Sciences and Human Services programs learn about end-of-life issues and how to care for and communicate with patients and families involved. Find out more so you can participate in the dialogue. Check out the Library’s subject guide on Palliative Care.
