Forum 2021 – Irish Hospice Foundation

What can you expect from Forum 2021?

We will explore our learnings from the pandemic, what benefits we can bring to our future during the two-day conference.

Together, we will ask questions, create conversations, disclose feelings, explore our emotions, and make suggestions to plan ahead.

We are delighted that Dr. Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the World Health Organisation’s Health Emergencies Programme, will open our 2-day event. Dr. Ryan will share his reflections on the past eighteen months, what he has learned, what gives him hope and how the world can move forward into recovery.

Here is a quick look at what you can expect from this year’s event:

Day 1 Tuesday 5th October 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. will challenge our thinking about dying. Looks at the way we care for people at the end of life and what is new, what is innovative, and what is emerging from the pandemic. What should every single one of us should know about understanding and planning for the end of life?

Day 2, Wednesday 6th October, 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. will bring us together on grief and bereavement. Concentrates on grief, bereavement, and coping with loss, individually and as we return to work. We will learn from personal experience and professional engagement
