Palliative and end of life care with primary care

Primary health care provides continuity of care and information across the cancer continuum, including palliative and end of life care. This is part of the normal scope of practice for providers in delivering person-centred care.

The provision of accessible, culturally appropriate and high-quality end of life cancer care to those affected by cancer is an important intersection between cancer services and primary health care.
