About the Toolkit
The Palliative Care Toolkit for Indigenous Communities was created by Cancer Care Ontario in collaboration with First Nations, Métis and Inuit families and communities. It includes:
- First Nations, Inuit and Métis definitions of palliative care
- Personal stories and other resources to help First Nations, Inuit and Métis families and communities develop capacity in palliative care, and cope with grief and loss
- Information to support decision-making and planning for Indigenous people living with advanced cancer
- Information to help care partners care for community members living with advanced cancer
This program has been identified as a resource that supports Indigenous culture in long-term care by the Ontario Caring Advisory Circle.
