Blueprint for Action 2010-2020

Over the past 10 years, the 30 national organizations that are members of the Quality End-of-Life Care Coalition of Canada (QELCCC) have worked together to improve end-of-life care for all Canadians. Their goals were to improve access to care, increase the number of professionals and volunteers with the skills to provide high quality end-of-life care, promote research that would improve care, support the family members who care for people who are dying, and educate Canadians about their choices at end of life.

The Way Forward Integration Initiative

The Way Forward Integration Initiative (the Initiative) will engage all settings, sectors, professionals and governments in a dialogue regarding the implementation of community-integrated palliative and end-of-life care. Over the course of the Initiative, we will also encourage engagement and dialogue based upon sound evidence and promising practices. This will result in a Framework with targets and strategies that all stakeholders will have a hand in shaping, and that therefore reflect their needs and challenges, resulting in the ability to implement these strategies at all levels.

Advance Care Planning in Canada

Advance care planning is a process of reflection and communication, a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let others know your future health and personal care preferences in the event that you become incapable of consenting to or refusing treatment or other care. Advance Care Planning in Canada was a priority outlined by the Coalition in the Blueprint for Action: 2010-2020 and is managed by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association.
