The four Connect with CARE 2021 webinars, all of which are free and can be watched live, or streamed later, line up like this:
Thursday 7 January 2021 at 4pm – St Christopher’s CARE
For anyone interested in knowing more about St Christopher’s CARE
Join the St Christopher’s CARE Leadership Team, Jenny Fogarty, Maaike Vandeweghe and Dion Bachmann, as they set out their vision and ambitions for the new £6.5m Centre for 2021 and beyond. Attendees will get a flavour of the new building, discover some of the learning highlights for the year ahead and have the chance to quiz the team about the fantastic facilities and how to make the most of St Christopher’s CARE.
Tuesday 12 January 2021 at 5.30pm – Cicely Saunders Society – Open Meeting: Heart and Mind
For everybody with an interest in Cicely, her life’s work and increasing good end of life care around the Globe and any Health and Social Care Professional working in Palliative and End of Life Care
The little book Watch with Me was described by Dr Robert Twycross at Cicely’s memorial service, as her ‘autobiography’. Five short pieces written over as many decades take us through Cicely’s preoccupations with the care of the dying and the importance of belief in guiding her ideas and practice.
Professor David Clark will explain how the book came to be published in 2003 and then we will hear from some of those who have been responsible for translating Watch with Me into no less than seven languages (to include: Professors Carlos Centeno and Augusto Caraceni; Drs Isabel Neto, Irena Švab Kavčič, Franklin Santana Santos and Martina Holder; Rev Bente Bramming).
This is the first Open Meeting in our Cicely Saunders Society Open Meetings.
Wednesday 20 January 2021 4pm – Getting nursing at the end of life right: Finding the person in the patient
For all nurses, student nurses and others interested to explore aspects of nursing at the end of life and its opportunities
Join us for the launch of the NEW Lantern Model, the first new model of palliative and end of life care nursing for 20 years. In this webinar we introduce the model and consider one of its key tenets- that of finding the person in the patient. We will consider the notion of personhood and how this is affected in the face of a life-threatening condition, then focus on the nurses’ role in maintaining people’s sense of identity as they face the end of life. You will also have the opportunity to help us consider how we ensure this element of nursing is protected, perpetuated and enhanced in nursing today and in the future. This is the first of four webinars focused on the new model.
This is the first webinar in our Lantern Model webinar series.
Thursday 28 January 2021 4pm – No Recourse to Public Funds Toolkit
For all palliative care professionals and those interested in the No Recourse to Public Funds Toolkit
Join us for the launch of the ground-breaking guide, Do You See Us? This guide has been created for us by Claire Henry MBE, to enable professionals working across the palliative care sector and in migrant centres and related organisations, to support people in their role as family carers helping someone to die well while facing the additional challenge of having no access to the welfare safety net, due to restrictions placed on them as part of their immigration status. With at least 1.4 million people with No Recourse to Public Funds this is a timely, and we hope, change-making toolkit.
