The Victorian End of Life and Palliative Pare Framework guides the development of our activities. Palliative care is now ‘everyone’s responsibility in the healthcare, human service, social and community sectors to provide high-quality end of life care for their clients’. The framework has five priority areas:
  • delivering person-centered services
  • engaging communities, embracing diversity
  • coordinating and integrating services
  • making quality end of life and palliative care everyone’s responsibility
  • strengthening specialist palliative care
The consortium has an operational plan, which enables the coordinated implementation of activities towards the priority areas. Annual reports:  Who we are & how you can contact us:
