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.
The work on this quality standard started in October 2016.
Public feedback phase: September 2017.
For more information, contact QualityStandards@HQOntario.ca.
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.
