This week, Right at Home offices across Australia are promoting National Palliative Care Week (NPCW) held from Sunday 24 May to Saturday 30 May. This year’s theme is “Palliative Care… It’s more than you think”.  

 

During NPCW 2020, Palliative Care Australia hopes to spark important conversations in the community about the benefits of quality palliative care and celebrate the dedication of those working and volunteering in palliative care across Australia. 

A new report, commissioned with the assistance of The Snow Foundation by Palliative Care Australia and prepared by KPMG, was released this week as part of NPCW on Investing to Save – The economics of increased investment in palliative care in Australia. 

The report calls for an overhaul of the palliative care system in Australia, including an additional annual investment of just over $350 million, which will result in a saving of over $450 million across the broader health care system every year. 

The report also calls for a national agreement on palliative care between the Commonwealth and the states and territories, and a new full-time Palliative Care Commissioner, to help create the best experience possible for those with life-limiting conditions and those around them.
