Bruyère’s Palliative Care Program has earned an international reputation for excellence.
The Palliative Care program at Bruyère Continuing Care is dedicated to relieving suffering and enhancing the quality of life for people living with advanced cancer or other terminal illnesses. Bruyère’s Palliative Care team provides the pain and symptom management, guidance, information and compassion needed by patients and their families during difficult and emotional times. Our program is the largest academic palliative care unit in Canada and a leading voice for advancing care and improving the quality of life for terminally ill patients and their loved ones.
Our Palliative Care Program includes:
– compassionate care, evidence-based interventions, pain and symptom management, comfort and quality of life assurance.
An electronic referral system, called SMART, has been developed to access inpatient services on the palliative care unit at Bruyère as well as for the two Hospice Care Ottawa hospices. The SMART e-referral system enables health professionals to electronically submit hospice palliative care applications to both Bruyère and Hospice Care Ottawa. If you are a health professional, please complete this brief e-learning module
to learn how to become a registered SMART user and how to submit hospice palliative care applications using the SMART e-referral system.
Palliative Care is provided at Élisabeth Bruyère Hospital
