The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association Celebrates Six Months Publishing ehospice.com's Canadian Edition

OTTAWA, April 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) has now been publishing ehospice, the one-stop-shop for the latest palliative and end of life care news, views and inspiration, for six months, and would like to thank all of their collaborators and subscribers to date. ehospice recognizes the potential to connect people working in hospice and palliative care using the technology available today.

"Through this website and app, we hope to improve Canadians knowledge of what is happening across Canada and in their local communities," stated Sharon Baxter, Executive Director of the CHPCA and member of the international ehospice steering committee, "we are also proud to offer ehospice in both official languages."

Ehospice was created with the ultimate goal of improving patient care through access to information, to foster a sense of community in hospice and palliative care worldwide and to give a voice to people associated with hospice and palliative care, whether as professionals, volunteers, patients or caregivers.

ehospice is published across 10 editions by regional and global palliative care organizations, covering the latest news, commentary and analysis from around the world.

Today we are also delighted to welcome on board the American edition, managed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. We are also excited to announce that we have gone mobile! You can now access all our great content on our free iPhone app, as well as our mobile web app, which is compatible with most modern smart phones. Don't forget we also have an iPad app, with a new updated version launching today.
