If ever there was a time to promote palliative care to our MPs, MPPs, MLAs and healthcare decision makers, it is NOW. Bill C-277 has passed and Health Canada subsequently released a national Framework on Palliative Care in Canada. Now it is time for governments of all levels invest in implementing the Framework, in collaboration with appropriate provincial, national and community organizations.
There are many documents and tools available for your use. The following areas of our web site will be of particular interest:
Advocacy and Partnerships – Postings of CSPCP advocacy activities including documents, submissions, and media coverage
Reports and Publications – Major reports and surveys
Statements – Position statements, backgrounders, op-eds, graphics, and palliative care lexicon
You are welcome to reference any of the materials on our web site and to use them in your own advocacy work.
