The report features many new practices and innovative tools that can improve the future of home and community-based palliative care – for example, making virtual care more accessible, increasing the availability of palliative symptom management kits, and giving family caregivers adequate support to provide palliative care for loved ones at home. It is hoped that sharing some of these new practices and tools may inspire readers to use and adapt them as required, or develop and share their own innovations. By sharing knowledge and experience, together we can come out of the pandemic stronger than before.

Thank you to Dr. Stephen Singh for participating in the discussions on behalf of the CSPCP.
