A Temple Sinai Program: Introduction to Advance Care Planning
With our Member Dr. Barbara Bresver and Denyse Burns
Thursday, May 13 at 7.00 p.m.

What is an Advance Care Plan, and why is it important? It’s never too early to start thinking about your health care options if you’re not able to speak for yourself. If something unexpected were to happen tomorrow, what care would you want to receive – or not receive? Who would speak on your behalf? These decisions are not easy, and it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

After forty years in private practice, our member and psychologist, Dr. Barbara (Bunni) Bresver, has followed her interest in bereavement and grief. She has acted as a witness for those requesting Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) and is on the executive of the Toronto GTA chapter of Dying With Dignity Canada (DWDC), where she is working with people exploring advance care planning

Denyse Burns is the founder of Madison-Burns & Associates, LLC, a Toronto firm specializing in executive coaching, communication consulting, and end-of-life doula consulting. She is the Vice Chair-Program Development of the Toronto GTA Chapter of DWDC.
