Event Details

This session will introduce attendees to the work of the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities  Palliative Care Network (IDD PCN) and the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) Palliative  Care Resource Guide and Toolkit that will be released this year.  People with Intellectual and Developmental Disability (PWIDD), many with distinct complex needs, lack  equitable access to palliative care, including providers with competency in IDD palliative care. Existing  palliative care frameworks and tools are not directly transferable to IDD and require specification. The IDD Palliative Care Network (IDD PCN) was established in 2020 and comprises palliative care and  developmental service providers from across Ontario. Our aim is cross-sector capacity building to  empower providers in the Developmental Services and Healthcare sectors in the delivery of quality  palliative care that meets the distinct needs of PWIDD. The IDD Palliative Care Resource Guide  and Toolkit is intended to equip providers in the delivery of IDD specific palliative care “Good Practices”  and clinically appropriate tools for use in PWIDD
