To best answer questions about how to build effective and sustainable community-based palliative care we turned to more than a dozen experts, the champions — the innovative nurses, doctors and administrators who have led the charge — those who have already implemented palliative care in communities, both large and small, across Ontario. We asked them:

  • how to achieve role clarification and avoid turf wars among varied hospice palliative care organizations
  • how to foster trust, mutual respect and the critically-important interdisciplinary relationships
  • how to move forward in the absence of new resources, buy-in from primary care physicians, overcoming system barriers and, simply, getting started
  • for advice they would give to new or developing teams
