McMaster University launched the first global, multi-sectoral survey on: “Palliative care during international humanitarian action”. Pilot tested and available in three languages (French, English, Arabic), this survey is intended for all involved in the delivery or oversight of humanitarian healthcare (as providers, policy-makers, or other) in the last two years.

Through this survey, McMaster University hopes to deepen understanding of current palliative care needs and practices in humanitarian action (related to public health emergencies, armed conflicts, forced migration settings, and natural disasters).

This survey forms part of McMaster’s larger R2HC-funded study that aims to:

  • Clarify ethical and practical possibilities and challenges of humanitarian organizations addressing patients’ and families’ palliative care needs during humanitarian emergencies
  • Inform realistic, context-sensitive and stakeholder-informed guidance, education, and practices for the provision of palliative care during humanitarian emergencies
  • Develop a baseline of current palliative care provisions in humanitarian action against which progress can be measured

We hope you didn’t miss this opportunity to add your voice to a global discussion on current practices and needs related to non-curative healthcare in humanitarian emergencies!
