Learning to learn and passing it on
The Canadian Hemophilia Society retreat entitled Learning to learn and passing it on
was initiated as a result of the session on aging with a bleeding disorder held during Rendez-vous 2017
. Its goal is to address current needs of people ageing with a bleeding disorder and to help address future needs. The CHS will offer about 30 sponsorships to enable Canadian men and women, aged 60 years and over, living with a bleeding disorder, and/or their caregiver/support person, to attend the retreat taking place at the Chantecler Hotel in Sainte-Adèle, Quebec, November 2-4, 2018.
For the purpose of this workshop, the expression “caregiver” or “support person” is defined as an unpaid person, usually within the family environment, who provides personal assistance, emotional support and/or physical care to a person with a bleeding disorder, 60 years of age or older.
The sponsorship program is open to Canadian men and women with an inherited bleeding disorder, aged 60 and over. The retreat is also open to their caregivers / support persons whether they attend with the person they care for or not.
A Selection Committee will choose the participants from the received applications based on their qualifications, and geographical criteria to ensure national representation (as much as possible) and a good balance among participant profiles.
Interested participants must complete the attached application form and forward it to the CHS before 5 p.m. September 14, 2018. Sponsorship recipients will be notified by late September.
