On Monday, December 11, 2017, St. Joseph’s Care Group's, North West Regional Palliative Care Program received the North West LHIN Leadership Award for its Exceptional Approach to Stakeholder engagement. Since 2015, the Regional Palliative Care Program (RPCP) has been creating an integrated system of palliative care. The RPCP has prioritized engagement with First Nations communities and the organizations that support them in delivering care to their members. The RPCP aims to respond to the needs of not only the individual but their family, friends, and caregivers and includes a full continuum of care available from initial diagnosis to the period of bereavement. RPCP identified local champions to lead community palliative care programs in all five LHIN Sub-regions, signed formal partnership agreements with community palliative care teams in 9 Local Health Hubs across the region, and established a community of practice for local palliative care champions.
