Princess Margaret Cancer Centre releases new online tool

August 26, 2014

pmccThe Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has a new tool to help you find info on hospice and palliative care services across Ontario. This directory was designed to empower patients, families and healthcare providers in making timely and informed choices about end of life care.

Although some people hope to remain at home for the duration of their illness, many people find that admission to an inpatient Hospice Palliative Care setting can be helpful. These inpatient care settings include palliative care units, residential hospices, or dedicated palliative care beds within local hospitals. Inpatient hospice palliative care offers 24 hour care, specialist pain and symptom management, and psychosocial support for patients and families.

The interactive map can be searched by address, city, or postal code, and results can be limited to a certain geographic distance, specified by the user, and contains links to other important details:

Contact ontario.hpc@rmp.uhn.ca for more information, or visit the Inpatient Hospice Palliative Care Directory.
