Maclean’s: Redefining palliative care

March 21, 2014 — 

Kate Lunau at Maclean’s magazine writes about palliative care and draws upon the thoughts of U of M law professor Mary Shariff, whom UM Today featured as one of our first stories.

As Lunau writes:

Spurred by aging Boomers, Canadians are increasingly thinking about how they wish to die—and whether they should have the right to say when, through euthanasia or assisted suicide. But that debate can’t happen, argues Mary Shariff, law professor at the University of Manitoba, until palliative care is available to all.
