Palliative Care

Create a system of shared care between specialist physicians, family physicians with special interest in palliative care and family physicians.  Create a system of early identification of patients requiring palliative care. This integrated team would be able to best serve a patient with a life-limiting illness by offering a single point of entry into the system and integrated care during their journey towards end of life, as their health care needs change.

Palliative Care 2.0

Develop a system of integrating the multi-disciplinary palliative care team early in a patient's diagnosis of terminal cancer.
