Family Engagement Opportunity: Pediatric Palliative Care Historical Book Project

Opportunity to share family perspective on Canuck Place care via Zoom and contribute to book content

This opportunity will highlight to the public in various ways, the important and impactful care our Canuck Place team has provided for children and families across the province for over 20 years. This opportunity invites Canuck Place families to participate in a recorded Zoom session for an upcoming book on the history of pediatric healthcare from 1995-2020.

The Zoom session will invite family participants to speak to Canuck Place’s family-centered approach to care and its development over time. The book and its accompanying resources (the Zoom sessions) will be shared across all CPCH communication and marketing channels once completed in addition to third party channels (the publisher.) While we will share this content primarily in the month of its publication (date to be confirmed), content will also be used in ongoing communication initiatives.
