Palliative Care

Palliative Care Australia is seeking feedback on its latest draft of industry standards.

PCA President Professor Patsy Yates said the process had been driven by the palliative care sector, which was calling for the standards to be updated to “clearly articulate and promote a vision for compassionate and appropriate end of life care across all settings”.

Australia’s ageing population will place increasingly heavy demand on the palliative care sector in the coming years. The industry body is aiming to ensure the standards reflect current practice while remaining relevant in the future.

Individuals and groups can offer their contributions on National Palliative Care Australia website until 26 September 2014.
