Developing this Framework would not have been possible without the participation and dedicated efforts of the members of the Palliative and End-of-life Care National Network (PEOLCNN). The Partnership and Health Canada would like to acknowledge the significant contributions of the PEOLCNN and the numerous expert advisors and leaders, educators, clinicians, patients and family members, policy makers, researchers, health service planners, and cancer control organizations that have helped shape this Framework. The Partnership and Health Canada would especially like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions also made by the BC Centre for Palliative Care, the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians, and Pallium Canada.
