"Palliative Care is Everyone's Business"

We are a subcommittee of the NOSM CEPD Unit providing Palliative Care Education for North East Ontario. Our target audience includes physicians, residents, learners, RNs, NPs, other health care providers and Palliative Care educators offering compassionate, patient centered Palliative Care in the Northeast, however since we are virtual we invite participants from all across Northern Ontario to join.

We continuously gather information from various sources to gauge the needs of our target audience, which includes surveys and evaluation responses, but also unperceived needs such as provincial/federal guidelines, emerging trends, population health data, best practice guidelines and literature/research..

Program Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the palliative approach to care and common end-of-life care needs.
  2. Examine and implement collaborative team-based palliative care practice
  3. Explain and implement a strategy for improving end-of life pain and symptom management.

The committee is currently seeking MD representation, if you are interested in joining please email CEPD@nosm.ca
