Provinces and Territories Making Progress in Providing Palliative Home Care but Inequalities in Access Still Exist

– If all variables remain the same, Canada can expect to have more than 750,000 people in need of palliative home care in just over 30 years –

TORONTO, May 13 – With a rapidly ageing population and a rise in the number of individuals being diagnosed with advanced illnesses such as cancer, it is vital that all Canadians have access to programs, support and treatments that will provide them with comfort and dignity at end-of-life; however, results of a new Progress Report show that at least two thirds of Canadians (63 per cent) who are dying, do not have access to adequate hospice palliative care. Hospice Palliative Home Care in Canada: A Progress Report, released today by the Quality End-of-Life Care Coalition of Canada (QELCCC), reveals that 13 jurisdictions across Canada have in fact made progress in improving access to palliative home care services (case management, nursing, personal care and pharmaceuticals) – but there is still much more work to be done.
