Description

This reference guide for health professionals and volunteers describes the knowledge, personal attributes and skills providers need to deliver high-quality palliative care in Ontario. Applying these competencies in practice will lead to better care for people with a life-limiting condition, and encourage collaboration among professionals and organizations providing palliative care.

This framework is a deliverable from the Ontario Palliative Care Network Action Plan, as part of building provider competencies in hospice palliative care. It complements Health Quality Ontario’s quality standard, Palliative Care: Care for Adults with a Progressive, Life-Limiting Illness; and the OPCN’s Health Services Delivery Framework recommendations.
