Welcome to Palliative Care McGill
Palliative Care McGill is an interdisciplinary network of clinicians, educators, researchers, allied-health professionals, volunteers and support staff who work together across five teaching hospitals to provide top-quality palliative care, education, and research.
The Mission of Palliative Care McGill is to improve the field of palliative care and enable persons with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses and their families to live with optimal quality of life. Palliative Care McGill aims to achieve these objectives by becoming a center for academic excellence through the following four axes:
- Interdisciplinary research
- Interdisciplinary education
- Support to social policy development and community outreach
- International collaboration
Volunteering in palliative care is a uniquely rewarding experience. As members of the palliative care team, volunteers are given the opportunity to accompany patients at the end of life and their families within the supportive environment of an experienced interdisciplinary team.
To become a palliative care volunteer, a mandatory training session must be completed.
