This community of practice (CoP) focuses on supporting primary care clinicians to integrate primary palliative care in their practices. This program is geared towards any primary health care provider such as physicians, nurses or allied health professionals. Sessions within this COP cover topics such as managing complex pain and symptom management, building on essential communication skills, supporting patients being cared for in the home, access resources in the community and providing bereavement care in the context of complex grief.
