Palliative Care

Shared Care's Palliative Care Spread Network aims to support and connect communities working toward the common goal of improving the local palliative care journey for patients, families, and caregivers - as well as for providers involved in their end-of-life care. 

Communities are identifying gaps and creating solutions in the following areas :

  • communication among providers, patients and families
  • referrals between GPs and Palliative Care specialists
  • provider education and resources
  • awareness of community supports for patients, families and caregivers
