Get to the Heart of It: Being, Caring, Doing
Meaningful Connections & Actions
We are looking forward to seeing many of you at CHAC's 2024 conference which will continue to build on the theme of Being, Caring, Doing. Our 2023 program centered on supporting depleted health care workers and administrators through sessions on burnout, compassion cultivation training, and mindfulness for self and others. Our 2024 conference hosted in Winnipeg May 8-10 will focus on meaningful connections and taking action to make a difference in our communities and in people’s lives.
The conference will open with an evening of entertainment on Wednesday. We’re excited to begin on Thursday with a presentation and active learning experience facilitated by Dr. Shane Sinclair on spreading and scaling up compassion in healthcare—moving from personal responsibility to organizational priority. Zofia Dove, an expert in palliative communication, will also inspire us with an energizing, entertaining, actionable and inspiring presentation where participants will learn how being of service leads to impactful compassionate actions, results in the most meaningful care and how a heart centered approach in the most challenging times, leads to real connections, humour- joy and meaningful conversations, while positively impacting all involved.
On Friday, we’ll focus on the journey from loneliness to connection with an agenda that will challenge us to explore the inseparable aspects of being, doing and caring in our own work and our healing ministry. The conference will close with the TED keynote speaker Ted Tomlinson, founder of the C.A.R.E. Effect Movement. who will speak about The Naked Truth About Compassion is Revealed — A Return to the Heart of Healing.
