(July 2020) With support from the Canadian Medical Association, Scotiabank, and MD Financial Management, CSPCP and Pallium have launched a moderated online community of practice—The Canadian Palliative Care (CPC) Exchange (http://www.cpcexchange.ca). The Exchange will support interactive, online national dialogue between health care professionals across Canada regarding the most relevant COVID-related topics in palliative care.

The Exchange is a professional learning site, moderated by members of the CSPCP, and open to all health care professionals including physicians, nurses, social workers, and pharmacists.

There is no cost to participate.

Join the Exchange now to:
• Ask questions about palliative care during the COVID-19 pandemic

Free online learning modules from Pallium

(March 31, 2020) For the next 3 months, Pallium and CMA have made 6 Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative Care (LEAP) modules available for free to all health care professionals. In doing so, we hope to contribute much needed education resources to the dedicated health care teams across Canada and ensure patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, receive the care they need. These modules, currently only available in English, are self-directed and completed at the learner’s own pace.

Pallium and CMA believe it is more important than ever for frontline health care professionals and teams to be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and skills to provide a palliative care approach to patients and their families, as health care teams work tirelessly to keep Canadians safe amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
