​​Who We Are

The Palliative Care team helps patients and families improve their quality of life when facing problems related to a life-limiting illness. Our goal is to prevent and ease suffering, due to pain or any other symptoms. This can be helpful at any point during an illness, and not only at the end of a person's life. Our care includes:

  • Pain and symptom management
  • Psychosocial and spiritual support
  • Referral to (and collaboration with) home nursing and palliative care services
  • Advance care planning
  • End-of-life care

Public-policy makers have also joined the debate along with the Canadian Medical Association and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. There's no shortage of insight and opinions.
