More than 60,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer this year and will require special end-of-life or palliative care. According to practitioners, researchers and families there has been a lack of palliative care services for these patients. Thanks to new funding from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR), McGill researchers will now be able to evaluate the most effective and efficient types and methods of palliative care.
Their programme, led by Robin Cohen of McGill’s Department of Oncology, will advance palliative care research and may ultimately lead to improved care for people dying of cancer.
Other partners in the McGill programme are the National Cancer Institute of Canada, l’Université Laval and the University of Ottawa.
