CSPCP joins Palliative 4 Canadians Coalition

Palliative 4 Canadians (P4C) is a coalition of four national organizations whose sole mandate is to improve palliative care in Canada. These well-established groups provide leadership and guide progress in palliative care, and reflect an comprehensive range of knowledge, experience and expertise. All have a long history of working collaboratively with national, regional and local organizations across the country.

Palliative 4 Canadians is an action-oriented, independent working group whose mandate is to work with the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Governments to review and implement strategies to improve the quality and access to palliative care in Canada. This working group is comprised of Canada’s four national palliative care organizations that will bring perspectives and recommendations forward in an effective and efficient manner, capturing input from stakeholders such as, but not limited to, the Quality End of Life Care Coalition of Canada and the Palliative Care Matters initiative.

Dr. David Henderson from the CSPCP is Chair of the group. Dr. Leonie Herx and Ms. Kim Taylor also represent the CSPCP on the P4C coalition.
