Palliative care course for health care professionals who work in home care.

LEAP™ Home Care is an interprofessional, facilitated learning program that focuses on the essential competencies to provide a palliative care approach, with case studies and group discussions contextualized to a home care setting.


“I am more aware of using the Palliative Care approach. I am using more “how” and “what” questions in my interactions with clients and their families. I am allowing more time for discussion on “what matters” to the clients and their families.”
