Tenth Annual Collective Soul

2 Minute Read

Spirituality and religiosity are recognized as factors that contribute to the quality of life and coping strategies in many persons facing life-threatening illnesses. These life-threatening events can also give rise to spiritual distress. When combined with chronic or acute pain and other physical and psychological symptoms, spiritual distress can be a component of a patient’s total suffering. The purpose of this two-day virtual course is to provide a better understanding of the Palliative Care Team’s role in enhancing the Human spirit and relieving patient’s bio-psychosocial and spiritual suffering.

The two-day Collective Soul Symposium will begin on Friday, March 5, 2021, with Opening Remarks at 8:00 am and will adjourn for the day at 6:00 p.m. The symposium will reconvene on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 8:00 am and adjourn at 1:15 p.m. Advanced registration is encouraged.
