The Quebec government and its’ population favor remaining at home for as long as possible, even until end of life. This is a very important paradigm shift that requires an increase in dedicated home care resources. This situation creates a number of issues for both the person who is ill, as well as for caregivers, all of whom need support. It also brings up a number of ethical questions, potential conflicts of interest, allegations, and even civil liabilities of the various players, notably those of caregivers who tend to be most often implicated. This presentation addresses questions that take into account these recent developments and new government policies in this area.
Speaker: Me Danielle Chalifoux, President of Institut de Planification des Soins
