Care at the End of Life: An Evolving Canadian Landscape
Jeff Blackmer, MD, MHSc, FRCPC, Vice-President, Medical Professionalism, Canadian Medical Association
Abstract: The past few years have seen major changes in our approach to care at the end of life in Canada. From advances in palliative care to a Supreme Court decision paving the way to physician assisted dying, the landscape seems to shift near daily under our feet. This discussion will provide an update on the current situation with a focus on the work of the Canadian Medical Association in this area.
