A Knowledge Translation Project on Benchmark End-of-life Care Practices for the Elderly in Primary Care

The project was done at primary care practice sites at Fraser Health and several divisions of Family Practice in BC. Primary care physicians were directly involved as they are well positioned to provide palliative and end-of-life (EOL) care to patients.
