I am a health care professional

Victoria Hospice has been a leader in the development of information, tools and resources to assist in the provision of expert palliative care.

We offer publications, courses and customized training for professionals.

We conduct ongoing research in the field of palliative care, and use the information we gather to develop tools to improve the quality of care provided to patients.

We also provide resources and training to hundreds of volunteers, both clinical and non-clinical, working at Victoria Hospice.
