Questions to consider when creating a listing
The questions below are provided in order to give you an idea of what information is requested in a listing. The actual questions will be within the sign-up form. The more details you provide, the richer your listing will be. When other using the website are looking for practitioners, information, and services, your profile will help match others‘ needs with your particular offerings.
- Are you interested in being part of a community of diverse deathcare practitioners and supporters, whose orientation and offerings resonate with CDC’s vision, mission and values.
- Do you have a statement ready for posting that describes your values and approach ?
- Do you have bio and picture of yourself to post on the listing (no more than 1MB in size)?
- Can you describe your previous deathcare experiences? Are you actively connected to other deathcare-related groups and communities? What is that relationship?
- In what ways are you committed to ongoing, life-long learning and evaluation?
