Understanding Grief and Loss – people with a chronic disease or terminal illness

Understanding Grief and Loss is an online forum suitable for people with a chronic disease or terminal illness.

  • Wednesday 17 June 10–11:30am

This forum will cover information on what grief can look and feel like, how it affects us and how to care your yourself as well as others who are grieving. You will also have opportunity to get your questions answered by our experts.

Understanding Grief and Loss will be presented by Dr Margaret Sealey and facilitated by our CEO Lana Glogowski. Margaret is a Murdoch University researcher and lecturer who has worked in palliative care, oncology and dementia settings for over 20 years. With a previous background as a registered nurse, she also has qualifications in psychology and counselling. Her research interests are focused on end-of-life, family caregivers, grief, bereavement and dementia.
