PALLIATIVE CARE COMPETENCIES FOR UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL STUDENTS IN CANADA
Educating Future Physicians in Palliative and End-of-Life Care
A competency-based model of medical education is being integrated across the trajectory of medical education in Canada — from undergraduate, to postgraduate, to continuing professional development — as a way to ensure that Canadian physicians have the skills and abilities required to provide safe and effective medical care, and to guide lifelong learning, where physicians’ skills and abilities evolve along with changes in healthcare and in response to patients’ and societal needs. The competencies were originally developed from 2004-2008 and were update in 2018. Click here to view the Postgraduate Competencies for Palliative Care.
