How to access palliative care?

Palliative care can be obtained through any member of your health care team or by direct contact with a palliative care provider. Palliative care is offered in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, nursing homes and free standing hospice facilities.  Once your doctor/ health care team determines that palliative care is appropriate for you, they will initiate the referral to the facility that best meets your needs

A useful website for those in Quebec is the Réseau des soins palliatifs du Québec and in Montreal the Santé Montréal website as well as the Palliative Care McGill website.
