St. Michael’s Inner City Health: Excerpt: Through the launch of a new pilot program starting this July, I’ll be heading out into the community with a team of health care professionals to provide palliative care to patients who are homeless and vulnerably housed. Our new program, called PEACH Palliative Education and Care for the Homeless, is an initiative of the Inner City Health Associates. We are a group of more than 60 physicians working in shelters and drop-in sites to provide care to homeless and marginally housed individuals in Toronto. The PEACH initiative aims to bring interdisciplinary palliative care to these patients who represent one of our most vulnerable and marginalized populations, by meeting patients wherever they may be.
