Quality Palliative Care in Long Term Care Tools for Change

Tools for Change is a resource that was created by the Quality Palliative Care in Long Term Care (QPC-LTC) Alliance to guide long term care homes in Canada that are creating their own formalized palliative care programs.

The Alliance consists of 30 researchers & knowledge brokers, 50 community organizational partners, and students along with several nursing homes. 

The model of care for palliative care in long term care is supported by multiple quality improvement interventions for implementing education, direct care, community partnerships, and policy and program development.

The toolkit modules include:

Module #1: Introduction
Module #2: Palliative Care in Long Term Care Philosophy
Module #3: Process for Change
Module #4: Module, Tools and Innocations

A video explaining the toolkit is available on the website.
