Palliative Care WA needs your membership to be a strong peak body for palliative care

The delivery of quality palliative care is being impacted by an ageing population with increasingly complex health conditions, technological advances in medicine, consumer directed care as well as a push for euthanasia and physician assisted suicide.

 

A committed and diverse membership base will ensure that the policy and advocacy positions of Palliative Care WA (PCWA) reflect the broad community. PCWA works collaboratively with service providers, health professionals and clinicians, researchers, educators, consumers, carers, volunteers and community members to achieve our objectives. Palliative Care spans many sectors and PCWA engages with a broad range of organisations operating within the health, aged care, disability and community service sectors as well as all tiers of government.

 

Now, more than ever, we need your support to enable a strong collective voice to ensure access to quality palliative care for all Western Australians.
