While increasingly recognized as a human right, access to palliative care is still not a given. Even though palliative care as a concept seems to be unanimously supported, it is still not readily available to all Canadians. Those who do benefit from palliative care services tend to also benefit from higher socio-economic status and family support, as opposed to those people facing the end-of-life who also face inequities like homelessness, poverty, isolation, racism, and stigma. In our presentation, we will discuss the key roles that nurses can play to facilitate equity-oriented palliative car, in order to promote “palliative care for all” who need it in our communities. Lessons learned from our work in inner city mobile palliative care will be shared.
