Welcome to Collaborative Project!

The Collaborative Project to Sustain a Palliative Approach to Care in Long-Term Care is a collaborative project that pools key regional and provincial stakeholder resources and expertise to integrate and/or strengthen palliative care in LTC homes across Ontario.

The Collaborative Project was designed to be flexible considering the pandemic. 

  • The project will run from December 2023 to March 30, 2024.
  • The aim is to support your team with strengthening your palliative approach by leveraging existing regional and provincial stakeholders’ resources and expertise.
  • We look forward to working with the team at your home reach their Palliative care goals.


Based on your selection, your team members and/or family representatives will receive coaching, training, and education from subject matter experts (OPCN, CHPCP, RPCN, PCCN, Bruyère Research Institute, and others). You will learn about evidence-based and practical tools and will be able to apply them to your practice immediately. The project will give your team access to a resource catalogue with provincially and locally available resources. 

The Project Aim:

The Collaborative Project is committed to supporting Long Term Care homes as they strive to improve and align their palliative care initiatives with the new Long-Term Care Act.

Timeline for Cultural Change in your LTC Home:

Your team will identify how they would like to improve the palliative care within their practice through a comprehensive self-assessment and then select up to three areas of improvement.
