The Caregiver Grief Connexion Project  

Pam Orzeck, MSW, PhD, is Associate Professor in the McGill School of Social Work and part of the coordination team at the Caregiver Grief Connexion project.

Ms Freitas’ expertise involves caregivers and caregiving, psychosocial practice, including palliative care and end-of-life care, countering adult mistreatment and older adults.  

 Ms. Orzeck and Ms. Freitas will speak about the Caregiver Grief Connection project, a new initiative that offers free and accessible educational resources on caregiver grief and bereavement for health and social service professionals and care providers. They will discuss their motivations for founding the project and what they hope it will achieve.
