Resources For Patients and Families
The MHPCN welcomes all patients and families to our website.
This website provides patients facing life limiting illnesses, their families, health care providers and physicians with current clinical information, resources and educational opportunities in palliative care.
Most of us hope to die peacefully, able to communicate with others until the very end. Death does not always occur this way. It's not easy to think about the care you'd like to receive at the end of life - but it's important. Making your wishes known ensures that you - and those who care about you - can make the right decisions if you can't speak for yourself.
Find out more about advance care planning.
There are tools to help you start this conversation with your family.

We also encourage you to explore a new resource - A Good Death, the CBC online series produced by students from the Graduate Program in Journalism at The University of Western Ontario.
