End of Life Research

End of Life Research

From time to time the SHPCA partners with or is sponsored by generous funding agencies to carry out the work that we do. Most recently we completed a year long Rural Road show that had us go out into ten rural communities to facilitate end of life care education and workshops. This was made possible due to the generous support of the Southern Saskatchewan Community Foundation and the Centre for Aging and Brain Health innovation. This support allows us to address our four key pillars: Networking, Education, Advocacy and Research.

Despite the overwhelming amount of information and services as it concerns palliative care in Saskatchewan and beyond. There is more research to be done, that we might have a deeper understanding of individual needs. More organizations built to cater to their smaller communities and more ground-level research to help inform the initiatives of higher and larger governmental bodies. This section will present some bodies offering grants to do this research and some people actively involved in creating it.

Strengthening a Palliative Approach to Long-Term Care (SPA-LTC)

"We believe palliative approach is beneficial at any stage in a chronic illness to maximize comfort and respect a person’s wishes. Working alongside health professionals and family members, individuals with a life-limiting or life-ending illness are involved throughout the illness trajectory. Care is rooted in open and honest conversations so that the personal, spiritual and emotional concerns of residents are heard and addressed."
