Canadian Palliative Care doctors make recommendations

November 7, 2016

The Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians (CSPCP) is calling on all levels of government to act immediately to improve access to palliative care in Canada.

In its new report — “How to improve palliative care in Canada: A call to action for federal, provincial, territorial, regional and local decision makers” – the CSPCP provides a detailed set of recommendations on how decision-makers can move to address serious deficiencies in the existing system. Currently only one in three Canadians has access to specialized palliative care services.
