Thirty years ago, we didn’t really have a hospice here in Edmonton. We now have a large number of hospice beds. This frees up room in the hospital to care for other cancer patients and ensures that palliative patients have the support they need to be comfortable and die with dignity. We have specialists providing this care-nurses, psychosocial support, pharmacists-in the community and in the hospice, and it’s now a specialty in medicine.
