Established in 1994, the Council on Palliative Care is a not-for-profit organization comprised of volunteer members dedicated to increasing public awareness about palliative care, and public support for its availability within and beyond the McGill University network.
The Council aims to:
promote access to quality palliative care in an efficient and timely manner for individuals of all ages and their families
provide leadership and support through dissemination of information, public education and training initiatives
advocate for the availability of, and equal access to, palliative care in our community
The Council is committed to the belief that everyone should be able to die without pain, surrounded by their loved ones, in the setting of their choice.
