When living with a serious illness, too often providers focus on treatments and cure and not on quality-of-life and symptom management – the focus of a palliative care approach.

 

Our Message: Early Palliative Care is Everyone’s Business.

We heard you...

I was desperate to help but didn't know where to go or what to do.

Begin with a small team of interested and committed experts with a common goal.

PATIENT

They went through everything with me, so I was ready and unafraid.

I know we’re doing a good job because ... the family physicians have developed the confidence to manage more of their less complex palliative care patients themselves.
