PCA & its Members a United Voice in Canberra

This week, the CEOs of PCA and its state and territory member organisations, held worthwhile meetings in Canberra seeking increased support for palliative care with the Minister for Health, Hon. Greg Hunt, the Minister for Aged Care and Indigenous Health, Hon. Ken Wyatt, Senator Richard Di Natale, Leader of the Australian Greens, and the health advisor to the Shadow Health Minister, Catherine King. The Minister for Health asked PCA and its members to prepare a strategic vision for palliative care and end of life care for 2030 by the end of this year. We discussed the need for much improved access to palliative care in aged care, associated workforce changes, and the need to embed palliative care in the new aged care standards and guidance.
