South East Regional Palliative Care Network

Earlier this year the Ontario Palliative Care Network (OPCN) was launched as a new direction for hospice palliative care across Ontario. This new way of looking at hospice palliative care will ensure that programs will be more aligned, that quality and performance will be measured consistently, and that patients and families will have a voice at decision making tables.

The OPCN is a partnership of community stakeholders, health service providers and health systems planners who are developing a coordinated, standardized approach for delivering palliative care services in the province. The goal is to improve access and equity in palliative and end-of-life care at home and in the community.

An integral part of realizing the OPCN vision is the understanding that every LHIN in Ontario will have a regional palliative care program in place to ensure consistent delivery of care across the region. Although the Network has not officially launched there is work underway looking at governance structures and an accountability framework in order to transition to a South East Regional Palliative Care Network, for more information, click on one of the links below.
