Palliative Care at the End of Life looks at the care and services that Ontarians that passed away received during the critical last month of their life.

Throughout, stories from caregivers and health care providers of patients at the end of their life are featured, to provide intimate details of their experiences that cannot be captured by the data alone.

The original report published in 2016 has been updated with refreshed data, analytics and current stories depicting the experiences of caregivers and healthcare providers in Ontario.
