Palliative & End of Life Care

About Us was made by Alberta experts in palliative and end of life care. There are many websites with great information about this type of care in Alberta, but none bring it all together. We wanted to make it easy for you to find the palliative and end of life care information you need—and that you can trust—all in one place.

What we offer

MyHealth.Alberta/palliative-care is for Albertans — people who need care, families, clinicians, and care providers. The information has an Alberta focus and is designed to be easy to understand and simple to find. Here we offer:

  • a quick and easy way to find palliative and end of life care services
  • links to organizations, groups, and services in Alberta that provide palliative and end of life care
  • real-life stories from patients, families, and health care providers
  • information for caregivers that’s been approved by Albertan experts
  • “gold standard” clinical information for health care providers
  • listings for education, workshops, conferences, and online learning

New programs

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is working with home clinicians, doctors, and families to help palliative and end of life care patients get emergency care at home. This new initiative — the​ EMS Assess, Treat, Refer program — helps people stay in their homes if that’s their wish.

Stories and viewpoints

Alberta palliative and end of life care professionals—from administrators to front-line workers—share their thoughts and stories.


Many people — including a provincial working group made up of the public and professionals — worked hard to design and create this resource. We’re very grateful to all the patients, families, health care providers, and experts who shared their stories and knowledge.​​​​​​​​
