McGill Programs in Whole Person Care is excited to announce that our fourth International Congress will be held virtually from 21 to 24 October, 2021.
Given the current global situation, we have chosen to move our event from an in-person conference to a virtual one. Join us from anywhere in the world, from the comfort of your home for an inspirational program and impactful networking opportunities. This year, the conference theme is Congruent Responses to a World in Crisis: Courage, Compassion, Community, and the Heart of the Healer.
Today, we live in a world full of unprecedented issues and crises, a world that is constantly changing and is very unpredictable. Difficult and scary as this can be, we must be prepared to see, listen, feel, and respond to the suffering of others and ourselves with respect, love, and understanding. When fear and uncertainty is coming to us from all sides, we feel called to offer solutions rooted in compassion, courage, and community.
Abstract submissions for oral presentations of 10 minutes or 3 minutes are welcome from all disciplines within the health care professions on the topic of whole person care which is healthcare that relates to the recipient of care as a whole person. Authors will be able to present their contributions virtually by sending a pre-recorded video presentation. They will then be asked to be present online for questions immediately following the presentation.
