McGill Cares Webcast - Nurses Advocating as End-of-Life Caregivers

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 12:00to12:30

Join us on July 22 at noon for the next webcast in our weekly series, McGill Cares, designed to support informal caregivers.  During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster, Alzheimer Care Consultant and Founder of the McGill Dementia Education Program, will explore topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.

Nurses Advocating as End-of-Life Caregivers

Louise Murray is the Director of Clinical Partnerships Office at the Ingram School of Nursing (ISON), McGill University and has held a variety of advanced practice nursing roles at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). Catherine-Anne Miller is a full-time Faculty Lecturer at the ISON. In her former role as a clinical nurse specialist in the Neuro-Oncology Program at the MUHC, she was involved in end-of-life care, and supported patients and their families as they faced life-limiting diagnoses.

Ms. Murray and Ms. Miller will discuss how their professional backgrounds have helped them navigate their own personal experiences of caring for loved ones living with dementia, coping with their own grief and loss during the pandemic crisis. They will also share important considerations for end-of-life decision making.

This free webcast is sponsored by Home Care Assistance.
