As a key partner in the Ontario Palliative Care Network, we are working to produce a quality standard for palliative care.
This quality standard focuses on palliative care for adults with progressive, life-limiting illness, their families, and their caregivers. It addresses palliative care provided in all settings, including primary care, home and community care, hospice, long-term care, and acute care.
Thank you for your comments and feedback. The consultation period has now ended.
The two guides below are in draft form. Please check back here in a few months for the finalized guides and for a variety of other resources related to this standard.
