Palliative Care - What To Expect

Palliative Pain and Symptom Management Consultation Program (PPSMCP)

The Palliative Pain & Symptom Management Consultation service supports service providers in home care agencies (CCACs and contracted providers), long-term care homes, community support services and primary care by providing access to Palliative Pain and Symptom Management Consultants.

These positions provide consultation, education, mentorship and linkages to palliative care resources across the continuum of care. PPSMCs are nurses (RN or RN/EC) with palliative care expertise and training.
