This year marks the 75th Annual Convention of the Catholic Health Association of Saskatchewan which will be held on October 22-23, 2018 at Saskatoon Inn.
Our first keynote, Sr. Nuala Kenny, OC, MD, FRCP will help us to focus on Jesus as our True North. Sr. Nuala will reflect on the journey of change and the inevitable questions we all face regarding health, illness, suffering, and dying. Sr. Nuala will provide a spiritual and biblical reflection to this by linking Jesus’ own experience of suffering and death with real-life stories about patients.She will be followed by Dr. Tracy Trothen, who will share her expertise on Why Values Matter and How Do We Know What’s Right with a focus on Moral Distress. Dr. Trothen will lead us through an interactive exploration of values and explore the reality of moral distress, and what happens when we find our values compromised. Finally, we are privileged to have the opportunity to hear Gregg Brown, MSC, CTDP, who will lead us to his interactive, powerful, mission-focused session on Learning Resilence, Leading Change. Brown will provide his participants with a unique perspective in order to acquire the critical mindset and skills needed to deal with change in any environment.
In addition to these three keynote speakers, our inspirational speaker, Mark Dansereau will share his personal family story, the heartache of losing a child to cancer, and the strength to find continuing hope. Following his daughter’s death, Marc’s passion for promoting the value of hospice care grew. Marc’s desire to do something meaningful led him to build sandcastles, something that they do as a family – one that is special - Bernadette’s castle. During the conference, Marc will build a sandcastle for us.
