How does Palliative Pupus work?
The theme and presenters for each ‘Palliative Pupus’ is announced one to two weeks prior to the meeting date via our Kokua Mau eNewsletter. If you are not receiving our eNewsletter yet, please subscribe here and we will keep you informed.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to Jeannette Koijane. There is validated parking for the first 15 people who request it with their RSVP. Others can feed the meter machine across the street at the DOH (which now has a two hour maximum enforced 24 hours, according to the new sign).

What is Palliative Pupus?
Our first successful Palliative Pupus meeting was held November 17, 2010 and has since become a bi-monthly event every third Wednesday of the month. (Except November due to Thanksgiving)

The model is an informal, interactive, collegial, pau hana to present and discuss challenging cases as a group. Palliative Pupus is for clinicians in a variety of fields: doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains.

  • Palliative Pupus is a potluck event so please bring food to share.

Oct 5 – Oct 6 all-day

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Injustice and discrimination permeate our daily lives negatively, influencing people who are impacted by mental illness, disabilities, poverty and homelessness, incarceration, and those from a range of racial and ethnic backgrounds, religions, sexual orientations and gender identities. Systemic injustice and discrimination, enforced through policy and interpersonal actions, can have a significant impact on mental health resulting in trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, addiction, and stress.

That which makes us different should not make us judge, discriminate, or mistreat our fellow human beings.  Challenging Injustice and Discrimination is designed to offer an open, safe forum where clinicians, service providers, mental health and social justice advocates, law enforcement, policy makers, outreach workers, funders, city planners, healthcare providers, educators and others can discuss the realities of injustice and discrimination and develop solutions to address these realities and long-term implications.

This series of six workshops addresses specific issues that can improve communication and interaction with loved ones with dementia or memory loss.
