Increasing Funding for Palliative and End-Of-Life Care

Government of Alberta

More than $11.3 million in funding will go to 25 projects to increase access to high-quality palliative care and ensure patients and families are treated with dignity and respect.

The government issued a call for project proposals in November 2021 in four priority areas that include earlier access to care, community supports and services, education and training, and research and innovation.

The funding and projects break down as follows:

  • More than $1.9 million to support four projects that advance earlier access to palliative and end-of-life care.
  • Almost $4.2 million for eight projects to expand community supports and services.
  • More than $4.1 million for 10 projects to improve health-care provider and caregiver education and training.
  • Just over $1.1 million for three projects for research and innovation.
