Abstract

Paramedicine and, more specifically, the role of paramedics in contexts of community-based palliative and end-of-life care are increasingly discussed in the literature. Within a public health palliative care framework, end-of-life care is viewed as a shared responsibility for everyone, including the broader community. This brief commentary discusses the international Ambulance Wish movement as an opportunity for innovative partnerships between paramedics, the palliative care sector, and other community members.
