Palliative care project involving Lakehead, UWaterloo, WLU receives $2.38M in federal funding

A research project led by Dr Lynn Martin (Lakehead University), Dr John Hirdes (University of Waterloo), and Dr Dawn Guthrie (Wilfrid Laurier University) focused on improving palliative care services for underserved populations will receive $2.38M over four years in federal funding. This project seeks to better understand what services underserved populations receive to identify the gaps and barriers these individuals face accessing palliative care. It will also develop resources for individuals, caregivers, and providers that are tailored to different underserved populations. Advisory committees composed of people with lived and living experience and the organizations that represent them will provide guidance for the project.
