The BC Renal Palliative Care Committee works to ensure that patients living with chronic kidney disease have access to high quality comprehensive and well integrated kidney palliative care. The committee oversees and coordinates efforts that will advance a palliative approach to kidney care that includes patient identification, advance care planning, symptom assessment and management, and care of the dying patient and bereavement in all types of kidney care (i.e. non-dialysis and dialysis care).

Committee membership includes patient partners, clinical and administrative leaders from provincial and regional health authorities and BC Renal. Members will work together by sharing their perspectives to enhance strategic planning and implementation of integrated kidney palliative care. Patient partners are instrumental in guiding future work as we strive to optimize quality of life for patients living with chronic kidney disease.
