Launch of "Who Am I?" Spirituality Resource Education Package

A seminar on March 22nd 2010 at the Treacy Centre, Parkville will launch an extensive education package for participants. The Who Am I? Spirituality Resource was developed by the Spirituality Committee of the North and West Metropolitan Region Palliative Care Consortium in 2008 to assist people to have conversations about spirituality with patients, students, clients and residents. The resource has been embraced by people working in palliative care, but has a wider application to other healthcare areas, schools, community centres, aged care and in the general community.
Feedback we have received indicated that some people still felt apprehensive about how to use the Who Am I? Spirituality Resource, so the committee with support from the consortium has developed an extensive education package to assist organisations in training their staff in the use of the Who Am I? resource. The Education Package will be launched at a seminar on March 22nd 2010 in Parkville. The seminar will replicate the information in the Education Package so participants will be able to experience the education first and then utilise it in their own work environments.

All participants in the seminar will receive a FREE copy of the Education Package as part of their registration. Numbers are STRICTLY limited, so be quick to book your place! See the flyer below for more details:
