Busting the Myths about Hospice Palliative Care

 

This year, the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) celebrates its 20th annual HPC week campaign by debunking myths that circulate around Hospice Palliative Care in Canada. Given the universality of death, dying, loss and bereavement, Canadians from all walks of life will benefit from breaking myths in order to support accurate health information about Hospice Palliative Care.

 

What do Myths do?

 

Myths create their own dialogue that generates inaccurate health information.

 

Myths form a culture of reluctance to seek out treatment options.

 

Myths can contribute to more fear when facing a critical illness.

 

 

What do You do to Bust the Myths?

 

Working together to educate one another is a vital step in the pursuit of excellent Hospice Palliative Care. During Hospice Palliative Care Week, we seek to encourage and engage in a public discussion to identify common myths.

 

Through the promotion of resources, education, tools, online engagement, and in-person interactions, the CHPCA challenge Canadians to replace these myths with current and factual information.
