Three weeks ago, we announced that the Peel Regional Council had passed a resolution highlighting the need for additional resources for palliative care within their communities. We are grateful for the council’s acknowledgement of the role of the hospice palliative care sector in providing access to the services Ontarians need, and of the work done with the provincial government by HPCO and the QHPCCO to inform policy and best practices.
We hope you will join us in thanking the council, who called for more funding an support required to advance hospice palliative care in the region, and throughout the province.
Have you considered engaging your own town or city council, by providing them information about hospice palliative care and asking for a similar resolution? If you would like a background information package on provincial hospice palliative care initiatives, we would be more than happy to provide you with one! You may request more information by contacting Anna LeCoche at 1 (800) 349-3111, ext. 22.
