By 2026 the number of Canadians dying each year will increase by 40 per cent, to 330,000. Yet Canada ranks only 11th in the 2015 Quality of Death Index released by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
To address this discrepancy, we are introducing a series of courses that explore a comprehensive range of end-of-life issues with experts in the field. Taking a multicultural and interdisciplinary perspective, you will develop your understanding of today’s rapidly changing approaches to end of life, integrating insights from the medical, scientific, humanities, spiritual, ethical, legal and social science disciplines. Regardless of your role, these workshops will enhance your ability to participate in improving the end-of-life experience for Canadians.
Take our end-of-life-studies courses one at a time to suit your work schedule.
