The Coalition is eminently qualified to lead such an initiative having just won Gold status for Climate Change Leadership in the 2020 Challenge Climate Champion Awards as part of Health Care Without Harm's Global Green and Healthy Hospitals initiative. Partner UHN is similarly internationally recognized as multiple award winners for Climate Resiliency (Gold 2015, Gold 2016) and Climate Leadership (Silver 2015, Gold 2016) and Energy Efficiency (Silver 2015).

Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement Launches Call for Innovations in Palliative and End-of-Life Care / La Fondation canadienne pour l’amélioration des services de santé lance un appel de propositions pour l’innovation en soins palliatifs et de fin de vie

(Le texte français suit.)


Open Call Will Strengthen Palliative Care for Canadians

Ottawa, Canada – February 8, 2017 – The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement today launched an open call for innovations in palliative and end-of life care. Of the approximately 220,000 Canadians who die each year, an estimated 70 percent do not have access to palliative services – and for many a palliative approach or referral is initiated only within the last weeks of life. By identifying palliative care innovations, we can improve access and spread a palliative approach across health systems.
