Developing Palliative Care Programs in First Nations Communities: A Workbook
This workbook is a major outcome of the EOLFN project and is intended for use by First Nations communities. It was developed by the research team that included the four First Nations community partners and is intended as a guide and a resource for other communities.
This workbook provides an outline for creating local palliative care programs in First Nations communities. The hope is that this workbook will support other First Nations communities interested in developing a palliative care program. It offers a process for community development and change, practical guides, ideas, and lessons learned.

Supporting the Development of Palliative Care Programs in First Nations Communities: A Guide for External Partners
The guide is intended for use by external partners, including health care providers and policy and programs developers, to support First Nations communities in their efforts to develop a local palliative care program. The guide is intended to be used in conjunction with the Developing Palliative Care Programs in First Nations Communities: A Workbook.
The guide articulates the role of the external partners in the community capacity development process. From a participatory approach to development, it situates the external partner as creating and supporting the environment for success. The First Nations community members are the primary change agents but external partners play a critical role in supporting change.
