Thank you for visiting our site!
Here at the Edmonton Zone Palliative Care Program we strive for excellence in Palliative Care. Through education, research and patient/family care we have one of the best palliative care programs in the country.
We have a number of resources available for you whether you are looking for basic palliative care definitions or clinical tools. Also remember to check out the 24th Annual Conference on Palliative Care!
Palliative care is the special care of a person whose disease cannot be cured. Palliative care provides comfort and support to the person and family. Palliative care does not hasten or delay death. The goals of palliative care are to: ease pain and other symptoms (such as depression, upset stomach), help the person to have a clear mind and support the person, family and friends.
