These best practice guidelines are a result of a collaboration of the following organizations: The BC Centre for Palliative Care, Fraser Health, First Nations Health Authority, Interior Health, Island Health, Providence Health, Vancouver Coastal, and Northern Health.
These guidelines are intended for inter-professional clinicians working with adults living with advanced life-limiting illness. Though these guidelines were created for adults, the symptoms may also be experienced by children with advanced illness. See additional resources within each guideline specific to pediatrics, illnesses such as cancer, and your organization / region.
