The Urgent Case for Accessible Palliative Care

November 04, 2021

As much as we try to ignore it, death is inevitable. Unfortunately, with access to palliative care services limited, a good death is not. Maxim Institute has just released its new discussion paper—Ending Well – The Urgent Case for Accessible Palliative Care—arguing that access to this care must be made available now to brace for the coming tsunami of people in need.

In this podcast Executive Director Tim Wilson sits down with Senior Researcher and author of the paper Danielle van Dalen, and palliative medicine specialist Professor Leeroy William. They discuss a wide range of issues from a good death, to ageing populations, and why the need for good palliative care is so urgent.
