Discussion 5.1: Health Care Provider Training and Supports

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

A 2014 Ipsos Reid Survey commissioned by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) of general practitioners, family physicians and nurses in primary care found that 20-25% of practicing physicians are not very comfortable or not comfortable at all, 50% are only somewhat comfortable and only 25-30% of practicing physicians felt very comfortable providing palliative or end of life care.

How could interactions between health care providers and persons with life-threatening conditions be improved?


This consultation is now closed.
