Sector and Community Consultations

The WA Parliament has appointed a Joint Select Committee on Palliative Care in Western Australia which is holding an inquiry into palliative care and is seeking submissions by 10 July 2020.

As the palliative care peak body, Palliative Care WA will be making a submission to the Committee. To ensure we represent as many sector and community views as possible, we are undertaking a consultative process.

Sector consultation

This forum will focus on the progress of palliative care in WA, and in particular the implementation progress of the recommendations made in the My Life, My Choice report resulting from the Joint Select Committee into End of Life Choices in 2017.

There will be a panel briefing followed by opportunity for participants to share information and raise issues they would like to see reflected in our submission. The panel includes:

  • Dr Elissa Campbell, PCWA President as panel moderator
  • Dr Alison Parr, Clinical Lead WACPCN and Director Medical Services, St John of God Hospital
  • Zoe Clarke, Senior Social Worker and PCWA Board member
  • Andrew Allsop, Manager at Silver Chain and PCA Board Director
  • Clare Mullens, Engagement Manager for Health Consumers’ Council

Please note that we are strictly limited to a maximum of 30 people in the seminar room and will therefore also offer participation via zoom. You can nominate which way you wish to participate when you register on Eventbrite.

Community consultations

In each of the following consultations there will be an expert briefing, followed by opportunity for participants to share information and raise issues regarding palliative care services they would like to see reflected in our submission.  All community consultations will be held via zoom.
