Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network: Community of Practice

September 16 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network is committed to supporting health and service professionals to provide skilled and compassionate bereavement care.  We heard you when you asked for more information and support.  Please join us to form a Community of Practice where we can all connect with one another to share our ideas, triumphs, and struggles.

The monthly Community of Practice is meant to be interactive, informative, and supportive.  We are seeking representation from across Ontario and will be monitoring registration to allow for this.  The number of participants may be limited, so please only register if you are able to commit to attending.  If you have more than one person from your organization that would like to participate, we ask that you only have 1 person register per session.

Topic: PAIL Network Updates; October 15th Awareness Campaign and Kits (update); Care in the Time of Covid19

Zoom details: Will be sent when registration complete
