Open Call for Innovations in Palliative and End-of-Life Care
A palliative approach to care across the continuum: Providing the right care, in the right place, at the right time
Thank you for your interest in the Open Call for Innovations in Palliative and End-of-Life Care.
The call for applications is now closed.
CFHI will communicate with all applicants by mid-May 2017.
Please check back here or follow @cfhi_fcass for ongoing updates and details—including the announcement of selected innovators--prior to the CEO Forum on June 21, 2017.
We know that right now, palliative care innovations are happening across Canada.
Although these innovations exist in Canada and elsewhere, they have not been widely implemented across this country. There is a need to identify and spread integrated approaches to palliative care and better understand their impact on experiences, quality of life, and costs for patients, caregivers, providers and systems. Tell us about innovations that are working well in your area of the country. CFHI wants to help spread them, to improve care for all Canadians.
If your innovation is selected, you will have an opportunity to:
- Receive a 2017 CFHI Innovation Award and be recognized as an innovator;
- Present your innovation at the CFHI CEO Forum (June 21, 2017 in Toronto);
- Benefit from CFHI support to identify opportunities to spread your innovation.

Palliative Care Matters Partnership
Canada is at a turning point when it comes to palliative care and we recognize that both national and local action is needed so that everyone can access timely, quality care in the last phase of their life. The Palliative Care Matters initiative was started by Covenant Health to ensure palliative care becomes part of Canada’s universal healthcare model and has joined many of Canada’s leading national health organizations and experts in palliative care and health policy to lead a Consensus Development Conference in Ottawa, Ontario on November 7-9.
CFHI was a proud partner of this initiative that developed a consensus statement as a road map for Canada released early in 2017.
