Today marks day one of my Stretch Experience. For the next four weeks I will be making my way across Canada via train with the intent to explore two aspects of leadership in palliative care in Canada, that being:
- What do current and future leaders need to know in order to effectively navigate the care of the seriously ill and dying?
- How does the expansiveness of Canada affect our delivery of palliative care?
The hope of this stretch experience is to provide insight into a largely overlooked part of our healthcare system and challenge current models of leadership in healthcare.
From a personal side, this is a unique journey and will be my first time traveling for so long by myself. I hope that the insights and stories shared here will be both educational and entertaining.
