Providing dignity at end-of-life for the homeless
Being sick, of course, is very hard, but being sick and living on the street, is even harder. Dr Naheed Dosani is a passionate and respected advocate for marginalized & vulnerable populations with palliative needs. He serves as a Palliative Care Physician at the Inner City Health Associates (ICHA) and William Osler Health System (WOHS). He recently completed the Conjoint Palliative Medicine Residency Program at the University of Toronto and prior to that, a residency in inner-city Family Medicine, where he was elected by his peers as Chief Resident of St. Michael’s Hospital’s Family Medicine Residency Program. After completing his training, Dr Dosani founded PEACH (Palliative Education And Care for the Homeless), a mobile, street & shelter-based service aimed at providing palliative care for the homeless & vulnerably housed. Through PEACH, he provides Toronto’s most marginalized populations with compassionate care and a dignified approach to their end-of-life journeys.
