Action plan on palliative care : building on the framework on palliative care in Canada.: H22-4/19-2019E-PDF

"This Action Plan lays out Health Canada's five-year plan to tackle issues uncovered through the development of the Framework. It aims to improve quality of life for people living with life-limiting illness, families and caregivers, and enhance access, quality of care and health care system performance. It complements current financial support to provinces and territories under the Common Statement of Principles on Shared Health Priorities. The goals and areas for action outlined below are quite broad. Health Canada will work within them, making strategic and targeted choices on specific activities, mindful of the federal government’s mandate and levers for action in the health sector. Some activities outlined are already underway, while others are in the development stage"--Page 2.
