End-of-life medical care


In recent years, the Collège participated actively in the reflection that led to the adoption of the Act Respecting End-of-Life Care. In 2015, it published three practice guidelines in order to help physicians who provide support to people at the end of life.

To ensure their patients receive the best possible care, physicians are invited to read the documents the Collège has produced on the subject, which are grouped together here to make them easier to consult.
