Palliative care

CMA’s National Call to Action

CMA staff and Past-President Dr. Louis Francescutti spent the better part of the past year examining the issue of palliative care across Canada. The project was designed to challenge physicians, other health care providers, policy makers, health care administrators and community leaders to be more active in palliative care, whether it is through working in this area or advocating for improved access and quality. The resulting report, Palliative Care: CMA’s National Call to Action — Examples of innovative care delivery models, training opportunities, and physician leaders in palliative care, was launched at the Advanced Learning in Palliative Medicine Conference in May 2015.
