A Facilitated Discussion of the Hospice Volunteer Palliative Competency Framework

November 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Pablita Thomas, Executive Director of the BC Hospice Palliative Care Association and Tina Lowery, Program Manager with the BC Centre for Palliative Care for the hour to discuss and share your experience with the Hospice Volunteer Palliative Competency Framework.

In the summer of 2021, the Provincial Competencies for Hospice Volunteers was released. This document was co-created with a working group representing hospice organizations from across British Columbia with the objective that it could be used as a foundational document throughout the volunteer management cycle when developing your own recruitment, screening, training, and assessment strategies.

The principle of ECHO is “all teach, all learn” and so want to hear from you! We will be reviewing the results of the survey sent out by the BC CPC earlier this summer and will use this data as a jumping off point to the sessions facilitated discussion. You will have an opportunity to hear from other Hospices and learn from their experience with the document and how they have implemented it into their programs.

Target Audience

  • Hospices, volunteer programs in support of palliative care on health units, LTC, or treatment facilities (eg BC Cancer)

Key Learning Objectives

By the end of the session participants will:

  • Have an increased awareness of the Volunteer Competencies
  • Understand that Competencies are a foundation to creating a vibrant, engaged, and effective volunteer program
  • Develop strategies as to how they can implement the competencies into their volunteer program
  • Strengthen connections and relationships with similar organization and volunteer programs so as to continue to share ideas and expertise
