End-of-life care: Maclean’s hosts a national dialogue

Timely talk about an issue of vital importance to all Canadians


Maclean’s and the Canadian Medical Association travelled to communities across Canada to explore end-of-life issues affecting patients, health care professionals and the country. Check out video highlights further down this page. The national dialogue culminated in a CMA report on end-of-life care released in Ottawa on June 10. We also hosted a live chat with Dr. Louis Hugo Francescutti, the CMA’s president, on May 5, when he answered many of your thoughtful questions.
