Access to Palliative Care in Canada
September 19, 2018, 12:01 a.m. ET
Report and media release
This report provides baseline information on whether Canadians, in their last year of life, have equitable and timely access to appropriate services, and where information and service gaps remain. As Canada’s population ages, access to quality palliative care services has become a priority of federal, provincial and territorial governments. However, little comparable information exists on how palliative care is delivered across the country, especially in community settings.
