Family Caregiver Research Website Launch

The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association is pleased to announce the launch of this website, dedicated to promoting research about Family Caregivers in Canada.

The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) is a national, bilingual, charitable nonprofit association with membership comprised of individuals and hospice palliative care programs and services from every province and territory. The CHPCA represents more than 500 hospice palliative care programs or services in Canada as well as tens-of-thousands of paid and non-paid staff working in home care programs, nursing homes, free-standing hospices, and hospitals. The CHPCA’s membership is open to all persons and programs and currently has more than 3,500 members.

The CHPCA’s mandate is to provide leadership in hospice palliative care in Canada through the pursuit of excellence in care for persons approaching death so that the burdens of suffering, loneliness and grief are lessened. Hospice palliative care is aimed at relief of suffering and improving the quality of life for persons who are living with or dying from an advanced illness or who are bereaved.
