Palliative Care Australia is the peak national organisation representing the interests and aspirations of all who share the ideal of quality care at the end of life for all.
The Palliative Care Collaborative Aotearoa (PCCA) has been formed to give a collective voice on the need for better, more equitable palliative care across all of New Zealand. Our five founding member organisations are Hospice NZ - Te Kahu Pairuri o Aotearoa, The Australia New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine, Hospital Palliative Care NZ, Palliative Care Nurses NZ, and Paediatric Palliative Care Australia and New Zealand. The PCCA’s six key focus areas include funding a national approach to the care of dying babies, children and young people, increasing funding to deliver sufficient palliative care services, ensuring sector strategies and plans are up-to-date and relevant, increasing training to support those working in the sector, increasing awareness so families and whanau can support one another up to the end of life, and increased regional and cultural accessibility to services.
ANZSPM has representation on the Editorial Panel for Australian Prescriber - a free, independent publication providing readily accessible information about drugs and therapeutics, published by NPS MedicineWise. It covers topics for health professionals, students and consumers.
