Many are watching KevinMD vigilantly. Many Healthcare advocates, who jump on an issue, confuse individual issues, personal stories, with trends and this truly obfuscates Canadian healthcare.
We have to ber in mind that KevinMD is writing from a US perspective.
In order to qualify for specialized care, in order to get your money back through healthcare insurance companies in the US, you must be officially declared palliative.
In Canada, we must monitor patient symptoms, disease asessements, do pain assessments, and make good decisions, such as whether to put in a feeding tube, which may not be a good decision.
We must provide research-based tests, not nurses who pop in and ask a client, "Are you in pain?" Our stoic seniors deny it.
