The Colchester East Hants Hospice invites you to participate in a Free Compassionate Communities Workshop with Pallium Canada’s Bonnie Tompkins.

Learn how to implement the Compassionate Communities Toolkit in your community!

The Colchester East Hants Hospice (CEHH) is pleased to host a Compassionate Communities workshop on the morning of November 9th, 2017. A unique opportunity to learn how to mobilize a Compassionate Community, this workshop will be facilitated Bonnie Tompkins and the CEHH social work team.

About Bonnie Tompkins

Bonnie holds a Bachelor of Public Health (BPH) with a specialization in Palliative Care. She currently works with Pallium Canada as the Compassionate Communities National Lead, which has her focused on mobilizing compassionate communities across Canada. She has also lead two compassionate community (CC) initiatives in Burlington and Niagara West Ontario. She sits on the steering committee for the Ontario Caregivers Coalition, is a contributor to CancerandWork.ca, a board member of Public Health Palliative Care International association, and is piloting an undergrad palliative certification with Pallium and Brock University, and collaborates with colleagues in the UK on PH initiatives. Bonnie’s interest in palliative care developed through personal experiences as a caregiver to her late partner who died while completing her BPH. Her desire to support quality of life includes 20+ years as a personal trainer.

What is Compassionate Communities?

Public health is what we, as a society, do collectively to assure the conditions for people to be “healthy”. Any issue affecting a society that has a prevalence, an impact on society, preventable suffering, effective interventions and equity issues, should be considered a public health issue. Given the universality of death, dying, loss and bereavement, palliative care is increasingly being seen around the world as a true public health issue. Much of the world has already mobilized around palliative care as a public health issue and a theory of practice to do so, has been articulated and embraced. This theory of practice that helps us mobilize on palliative care as a public health issue is known internationally as the Compassionate Cities or Compassionate Communities model.

Pallium Canada is invested in helping Canada mobilize around Palliative Care as a public health issue, and in particular, to understand, adapt and adopt the Compassionate Communities paradigm. Through knowledge translation, education, project facilitation and leadership, Pallium Canada invites citizens, communities, care-providers, schools, businesses, educators and organizations to learn about Compassionate Communities and to “re-embrace” and then engage, in this vital social transformation.
