Patients are able to get in and out of bed in Unit 2A much safer due to new bedside safety mats designed to prevent falls. The mats, which were made possible through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, have beveled edges for easy patient transfers from wheelchairs and lifts, and non-slip surfaces and padding underneath.
Most primary care providers have patients who are living with cancer. Our understanding of cancer as a chronic disease and new advances in palliative care are not just for cancer specialists. This page provides information about current course and CPD offerings from Cancer Care Ontario and the Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative (LEAP) Care designed to help all health care providers improve their skills in these areas. Eligible participants receive CPD credits.
