The EMR- Palliative Care Consortium acknowledges the Wurundjeri people who are the custodians on the land where we deliver our care and respect elders past & present

The Consortium’s aspiration is that Eastern Metropolitan Region residents with a life threatening illness, their families and carers have access to a high quality palliative care system that fosters innovation, provides coordinated care and support that is responsive to their needs.
