Access to care for people with severe persistent mental illness approaching end of life

Presenter:  Erin Donald
Date:  May 24, 2016
Time 2:00 - 3:00pm PST
Location:  Online Webinar hosted through InspireNet
Type of Event:  Online Webinar

Persons with severe persistent mental illness (SPMI) experience challenges and barriers to care from many sources, such as stigma and medical complexity. So what happens to care when a person with a SPMI reaches end of life? This webinar reports on a scoping review conducted to determine the extent, range, and nature of research activity about persons with SPMI approaching end-of-life, and to identify gaps and opportunities for future research. A discussion period will follow.

Erin Donald, RN, is a graduate of Ryerson University and received her MSN in Community and Public Health Program Development and Leadership at Seattle University. Her clinical background is in palliative home care nursing. She has also worked as both a research assistant with iPANEL and as a nursing research facilitator for the Fraser Health Authority. She is currently a PhD student at the University of Victoria where she continues to be involved in research through the Supporting Family Caregivers study. Erin’s research interests include palliative care, the application of a palliative approach in persons with life-limiting chronic conditions and their families, home and community based care, and mental illness.
