Consider the Conversation

Join NIC nursing students and the Hospice Society April 18 for a free screening of Consider the Conversation.

Join NIC nursing students, the Comox Valley Hospice Society and members of the public April 18 for a free screening of Consider the Conversation.

Consider The Conversation is a powerful film that examines multiple perspectives on advance care planning and end-of-life care. Motivated by their personal experiences with loss, two long-time friends created this powerful and inspiring film on the North American struggle with communication and preparation at life’s end.

Following the film, there will be a discussion panel of various professionals, including a palliative care physician, nurse, home care worker, spiritual care specialist, social worker and hospice representative. Bring your questions about end-of-life care and advanced care planning.

Entry is by donation to the Comox Valley Hospice Society.

It happens at North Island College’s Stan Hagen Theatre at 7 p.m.
