In Memorium - Dr. Carlyle Phillips
Dr. Carlyle Phillips passed away on August 6, 2016 in his home in Halifax. Dr. Phillips gratuated with his degree in medicine from Dalhousie University in 1961, and was one of the first members of the Department of Famly Medicine when he became a full-time facutly member in 1973, where he continued to teach until he retired in 1993.
During a sabbatical in 1990-91, Dr. Phillips studied palliative medicine in London, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia. He returned to Halifax and was instrumental in establishing the Palliative Care Program at the Victoria General Hospital. He practiced this specialty until retirement in 1999.
He was an active member in the St. Andrew’s United Church, the Canadian College of Family Physicians (provincially and nationally), and the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians. Dr. Phillips often reflected on the satisfaction he enjoyed from providing patient care and teaching student doctors for 38 years. He felt very privileged to have had the opportunity to be involved in the care of people at both ends of the life cycle — delivering babies and later bringing comfort to the dying.
In 1994, he recognized a need for a guide for symptom management for physicians who care for dying cancer patients. In 2000, he published “Comfort Care, Palliative Care Symptom Management of Cancer Patients, A Guide for Physicians”.
