Palliative Care Queensland

PCQ’s 2018 Submission for Queensland Health Palliative Care Service Review 2018

PCQ submission for QHealth PallC Services Review 2018

People in the last phase of their life are amongst the most vulnerable members of our society. Quality care and social supports during this last phase of life and a ‘good death’ for people should be the aim of every health and social system.

PCQ has significant concerns regarding the current Queensland service and support systems for palliative care. Specifically, the current service proposition across the state does not meet the current needs of our community. The current needs are evidenced by the Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration data which indicate a trend of increased episodes of care across Queensland. PCQ expects the need for all levels of palliative care services to grow in line with Queensland’s growing and ageing population.
