Palliative And End Of Life Care Patient Experience And Patient Reported Outcomes Primary Care And Cancer Care Integration Survivorship Resources And Tools

Palliative care is an approach to care that uses prevention and relief of suffering to improve the quality of life of patients and their families who face the problems associated with life-threatening illnesses. This is achieved through the early identification, assessment, and treatment of pain and other physical, psychosocial and spiritual problems. The vision of the Partnership’s Palliative Care Strategy is that Canadians and their families, have access to high quality, timely and appropriate palliative care that supports living well, and dying with dignity and respect in the setting of their choice. The key components of this work are to:

  • Improve coordinated support for patients and families through the education of health professionals, patients and caregivers with the goal of increasing access to quality palliative care.
  • Increase access to evidence-based, integrated high-quality palliative care services that are focused on the best outcomes and are aligned with patient preferences.
  • Improve symptom management and the ability to quantify the burden of cancer.
