Welcome to the Centre for Education and Research on Aging & Health and the Division of Palliative Care. The Palliative Care Division was created as a platform to exhibit two major areas of focus of our centre - Palliative Care Education & Research. The Palliative Care Division also aims to be a resource centre, linking visitors to other sources of information related to palliative care.
