Patient Centre

We are a people first organization — working hard to provide you with palliative care research and studies.

“Canada has been at the forefront of palliative care for more than 50 years, but still too few have access to early palliative care services within their community. Understanding how we can better identify palliative needs for patients not only improves their quality of life, but relieves pressure on caregivers.”
Dr. Bruno Gagnon
Co-chair of the PCPCRC, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine at the Université Laval
