FACTS AND STATS

More than half of the over 65,000 people who died in Western Canada in 2003-2004 died in a hospital, according to a new report by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). In-hospital deaths were more common in Manitoba (68%) and Alberta (65%) than in British Columbia (52%) or Saskatchewan (51%). Health Care Use at the End of Life in Western Canada is the first report of its kind to examine the use of health services by people nearing the end of their lives.
