Projects:

Complete the Role of the Pre and Perinatal Hospice Volunteer:  One in Four.  That is the number of women who hear the words ‘you are pregnant” will not have a pregnancy that results in a live birth. It is a staggering number and the single reason why HHA decided at “at any age” must include those who die in utero or shortly after birth.  This program Pre and Perinatal Hospice requires the engagement of professional Infant & Pregnancy Loss Doulas as well as those, who in a volunteer capacity, are able to assist in supporting the “non-birthing” members of the family.  Training these volunteers is your goal should you wish to work on this project.  Working on these modules will enhance your research skills, further develop your power point skills and give you inside knowledge on the best way to design engaging online learning.

Translating On-Line Training: Training to French: Respecting that Canada is a dual-lingual country we seek to have all of our online training power point presentations translated into French.  

Complete the Role of The Vigil Volunteer Modules:  HHA’s Hospice at Home (wherever someone calls home) program has been designed to centre around the important and necessary role of a Death Doula.  One of the most important roles a Death Doula performs is the vigil.  “Vigiling” is important for our dying and those who love them.  It allows families to help when they feel completely helpless.  Having a professional end of life care worker (Death Doula) to support the family and the dying person is key.  Our Death Doulas require the connection with volunteers who also wish to be part of this important experience for our dying.  Training these volunteers is your goal should you wish to work on this project.  Working on these modules will enhance your research skills, further develop your power point skills and give you inside knowledge on the best way to design engaging online learning.
