Dr. Klère Bourgault, a native from Sturgeon Falls, has had an active family practice since 2000. The interest in palliative care originated through residency after her mother died of breast cancer in 1999. Klère now does home visits for palliative patients that wish to die at home. She also provides medical care to patients in hospital. Her holistic approach to end of life care is partly due to Klère’s original career as a nurse from 1982 to 1996.
