This Palliative and End-of-Life Care (PEOLC) Provincial Framework has been written by experts in PEOLC across Alberta. The primary audience for this document is PEOLC interdisciplinary team providers, policy makers and service administrators. Additionally, the framework is a resource for clinicians who are not familiar with PEOLC and want to offer high quality PEOLC services. Albertans are encouraged to be aware of and review the document, but it is not intended as an informational guide for patients and families going through the PEOLC journey. There will be a companion document developed for patients and families with this focus. The framework and the action items outlined in the initiatives are relevant to many other health and community services such as senior executives within Alberta Health Services (AHS), the Government of Alberta, Primary Care Providers and Networks, and Family Care Clinics.
