About the Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program
What the Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program (CHPCP) Does
Funded by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), the regional program works to bring together a wide range of expertise to help coordinate care, assist with planning, develop performance measures, provide education and collaborate with health service providers to improve the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones at end-of-life.
Mission & Vision
Our mission is to lead the development and support of a person and family-centered, integrated, hospice palliative care system in Champlain.
We do this by building the capacity across our region to provide equitable access to enhanced hospice palliative care services across a full continuum of care.
Vision – The right hospice palliative care, at the right time, in the right setting, by the right provider.
Objectives & Results
The CHPCP regional action plan for 2014-2019 was developed in consultation with multiple stakeholders, community and health system partners. For a copy of the full plan click here:
Recommendations are organized into three focus areas:
- Focus Area 1: Equitable access to hospice palliative care
- Focus Area 2: Hospice palliative care across a full continuum of care
- Focus Area 3: Building capacity across care settings
This strategic plan guides our operational planning and priorities year-to-year.
Governance & Structure
The Ontario Palliative Care Network (OPCN) is a partnership among Cancer Care Ontario, Ontario’s Local Health Integration Networks, Health Quality Ontario and other groups and organizations including patient and caregiver representatives, clinicians and associations. The OPCN works with their partners and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to transform palliative care in Ontario and help to address the gaps within the current system to ensure Ontarians have access to high quality palliative care. For more information about the OPCN visit their website at: http://www.ontariopalliativecarenetwork.ca/
Each Regional Palliative Care Network/Program has its own governance structure which is accountable to the Local Health Integration Network CEO and CCO Regional Vice-President. In our region, the Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program (CHPCP) is the principal regional advisor on high-quality hospice palliative care and helps to inform decision making in the region.
The CHPCP is responsible for determining local priorities to meet provincial goals. It is governed by a 15 member competency based Council, responsible for directing the activities of the program to meet regional needs. The Council reflects a balance of skills and expertise, as the official voice of HPC in Champlain. Members work collectively toward better cooperation and integration in the hospice palliative care system.
