Community Education

At ARCH, we have a team who is pleased to answer any questions about advance care planning, palliative care, end of life care, grief, and loss. We have a wide range of educational offerings for the general public, students, volunteers, and health care providers, including:


  • Death Discussions: An interactive public education series held quarterly at ARCH Hospice. These discussions cover a variety of topics on death and dying.  There is no fee to attend, however, donations are welcome.  Please contact Natasha Rinaldi to register.


  • Palliative Fundamentals: A free introductory-level course ideal for any health care provider, student, or volunteer who supports people living with serious illnesses. Please contact Julie Premo if you are interested in registering for this three-part series.  


  • Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative Care (LEAP): This course provides practical, inter-professional, and evidence-based palliative care training for health care providers.  

  • Community Education Sessions: If you would like to learn more about advance care planning, palliative care, and/or end of life care within your community setting, please contact one of our Early Resource Nurses to arrange a presentation:
