Paramedics and Palliative Care: Bringing Vital Services to Canadians

CFHI and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) are partnering to fund and collaborate on Paramedics and Palliative Care: Bringing Vital Services to Canadians.

From 2018-2022, the organizations will jointly provide up to $5.5 million to expand access to paramedics trained in providing palliative and end-of-life care to people in their homes with a goal to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and support the family through the experience.

The collaboration between CFHI and the Partnership will support the shared priority of improving access to appropriate services and supports in home and community, such as improving paramedic comfort and competence in the provision of palliative care and bridge support for patients and families until their usual care team can take over.
