The palliative care registry is a data file maintained by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA). It started late in 2000 and contains all individuals identified as palliative care patients in Winnipeg. The registry contains information that could not be captured with the administrative data, specifically, palliative care patients who did not die in the St. Boniface or Riverview Palliative Care Units.
