Program Information
Faculty: School of Medicine
Degree: Not Applicable
Field of Study: Critical Care Medicine
Description Palliative Care is an interdisciplinary approach designed to provide compassionate care to the terminally ill and their families in their own homes, in the hospital, or in other care facilities. The goal of palliative care is to maintain or improve the quality of life of people for whom cure is no longer possible. Achieving this goal requires attention not only to the control of pain and other symptoms but also to psychosocial and spiritual needs as well. The Palliative Care Medicine Program of the Southeastern Ontario Academic Health Sciences Centre is dedicated to the development of a regional Palliative Care network that will provide an integrated programmatic approach for the delivery of accessible quality palliative care to all persons in the region. It is committed to providing interdisciplinary education and conducting research to improve pain and symptom management and psychosocial care of people with advanced disease.
