North Simcoe Muskoka Hospice Palliative Care Network (NSMHPCN)

Excellent Palliative symptom assessment and ongoing management are based on the acuity, complexity and variability of the person’s condition. The use of standardized and evidence based tools promote this excellence in practice.

Please join the NSMHPCN Nurse Consultants and Education Facilitators in a comprehensive review of 8 Cancer Care Ontario Symptom Management Algorithms. This review will assist you to identify and manage palliative symptoms, alleviate suffering and improve quality of life for your palliative patients/clients. These evidence-based guidelines are applicable to all palliative symptom assessment and management in patients/clients with or without a cancer diagnosis and can be used in all palliative care settings.
