Living Losses

This full day seminar includes experts in ageing, chronic illness and disability as well those with lived experience.

Participants can expect to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of the particular loss and grief issues faced by people experiencing ageing, chronic illness and disability and will provide information on how to address these. We will also hear from people with lived experience and how they have navigated these issues.

There will be time for networking and connecting; as usual the catering will be excellent.

The Loss and Grief Practitioners’ Association (LGPA) offers this seminar for health professionals and trained volunteers, in cooperation with the School of Health & Biomedical Sciences at RMIT.
