Imagine trying to access home care without a homeā€¦

In this session, members of the Palliative Advocacy Care Team (PACT) & Palliative Carelink will discuss how health and social care workers can adopt approaches to care that recognize and adapt to the social and structural determinants of health. The goal of this session is to challenge providers to re-think traditional models of care, and pursue practices that meet unmet needs of structurally vulnerable populations.

Learning objectives:

- Explore what it means to take an equity-informed approach to care
- Review the concepts of harm reduction, trauma-informed care, and cultural safety
- Identify barriers to care and resources for vulnerably housed clients who could benefit from a palliative approach to care
