Palliative Care Matters (PCM) was launched in June 2016 to ensure all Canadians with life-limiting illness have timely access to high-quality, coordinated, and integrated palliative care. The main objectives of the initiative are to foster a conversation between the public, researchers, and health system leaders about what Canadians need and expect in relation to palliative and end-of-life care; and to develop a pan-Canadian consensus statement and recommendations on how Canada can move forward to improve access to quality palliative care.
Palliative Care Matters: Fostering Change in Canadian Health Care synthesizes the key themes and aspirations of the recommendations, and provides insights on the mechanisms and strategies that could be adopted to realize those aspirations. The report also identifies potential next steps.
