Access to quality palliative care
Palliative care can increase a cancer patient’s quality of life and life expectancy. Despite this, palliative care is not available to everyone in Saskatchewan when and where they need it. Access varies greatly between rural and urban communities. All health regions receive funding for palliative care. However the level of service and quality of care varies greatly from region to region.
Advanced cancer patients should not face delays or financial barriers accessing palliative care.
Tell your MLA that Saskatchewan needs a plan to ensure everyone has access to the care when and where they need it.

Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
