Dr. Harvey Chochinov is a Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Manitoba and Director of the Manitoba Palliative Care Research Unity, CancerCare Manitoba.

Dr. Chochinov has been conducting palliative care research since 1990. His work explores various dimensions of palliative medicine, such as depression, desire for death, will to live and dignity at the end of life. Dr. Chochinov is highly regarded in his field and is a world-wide lecturer regarding dignity conserving therapy at the end of life. He is the only psychiatrist in Canada to be designated as a Soros Faculty Scholar, Project on Death in America. He is a recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal and his provinces’ highest honor, the Order of Manitoba, for his work in palliative care.

Dr. Chochinov will present his A B Cs of Dignity Conserving Therapy which include:
