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.
