Northwestern Ontario End-of-Life Care Network Welcomes New Members

The Northwestern Ontario End-of-Life Care Network is a leader in the development of palliative/end-of-life care in Northwestern Ontario. Palliative care is specialized care that aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying when death is inevitable. The Network aims to improve the quality of care at the end-of-life, and enable more individuals to live and die in the place of their choice. 

Over the past five years, the Network has helped twelve regional communities develop palliative care teams while providing education to members of the public and health care system through conferences, workshops, and presentations.  Learn more about the Network and how you can become a member by attending its upcoming Annual General Meeting.
