After many months of hard work and dedication from our team at North Simcoe Muskoka Hospice Palliative Care Network, we are pleased to announce the launch of our revamped website!

Our primary goal during the redesign process was to create a user-centric and responsive resource for those within North Simcoe Muskoka. Specifically, we wanted to focus on making it easier for our users to access valuable information pertinent to their needs.

“It is important not only for health-care workers, but also our clients, their loved ones and caregivers to be able to access information in an easy to navigate manner,” Whitney Vowels, Director of Operations and Communications, NSMHPCN noted.

“The revamping of our website enables us to offer virtual education sessions, which will enable attendees to attend education sessions from the comfort of their home or office. Education and ease of access to information is one of our top priorities at the network. Regardless if you are a health-care worker, a client or a caregiver, we want to make sure you have access to the information and support you deserve,” said Vowels.

The website has been reorganized into five key categories; Education, Advanced Care Planning, Support for Patients and their Families, Support for Healthcare Providers as well as COVID 19 Toolkit. This enables users to easily access information.

“At the network we offer a variety of Hospice Palliative Care Supports; including advanced symptom assessment for clients with complex palliative care needs, educational opportunities: courses, workshops and conferences and in-service presentations on topics such as advanced care planning and bereavement,” said Vowels.

“We have recently launched the NSMHPCN Palliative Nursing Support Line 844-429-0340 and Regional Bereavement Support Line 705-325-7871; information for both can be easily accessed on the homepage of our website.”

The community is encouraged to visit and look around. Familiarize yourself with the resources available so that if the time comes that you are in need of assistance, or if someone you know is in need of support, you will know just where to look.
