Today is National Advance Care Planning day. As a centre of continuing education in palliative care and oncology, we, at de Souza Institute, would like to share our 10 myths and facts document, so that families can begin a conversation about end-of-life care.
Available to Ontario Nurses!
Thanks to a generous sponsor, de Souza Institute is offering, in spring and fall 2014, free-of-charge, limited spots to:
Provincial Standardized Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Course
Patient Teaching and Education Course
Most of the free seats have already been filled.
Important to know!
Dear Oncology Nurses,
It takes a special person to be an oncology nurse.
Often you are sought out to translate complicated oncology terminology. You are a shoulder to cry on when a patient has just found out their cancer diagnosis. You guide patients and loved ones when they feel lost within the health care system. You are there when many are facing their vulnerabilities, their mortality.
For these moments and so many more, we thank you this Oncology Nursing Day.
