Ontario Palliative Care Network
The Ontario Palliative Care Network is an organized partnership. It is made up of community stakeholders, health service providers and health systems planners.
Together, these partners will develop a coordinated and standardized approach to hospice palliative care. This approach will be high-quality, sustainable and person-centred. It is for all Ontarians, regardless of age or disease type.
The network is guided by the report Advancing High Quality, High Value Palliative Care in Ontario.
- Act as the principal advisor to the government for quality and coordinated hospice palliative care in Ontario
- Be accountable for quality improvement initiatives, data and performance measurement, and system level coordination of hospice palliative care
- Support regional implementation of high-quality and high-value hospice palliative care
The network was established by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. It is jointly led by the 14 Local Health Integration Networks in partnership with CCO, the Quality Hospice Palliative Care Coalition of Ontario and Health Quality Ontario. At the regional level, partners include health service providers, hospitals, ambulatory clinics, hospices and others in the healthcare community.
