Palliative and supportive care services are for those with a cancer diagnosis or other palliative diagnosis. This program strives to ensure that patients have access to appropriate and timely services in a seamless manner.

These services aim to decrease the number of emergency department visits for palliative patients related to a health care crisis or pain control, and increase the number of deaths at home for those palliative patients who choose to die at home.

Palliative and supportive care seeks to enhance communication and collaboration among "end of life" agencies and providers through patients' disease progression.
