Welcome to Palliative Care Queensland

Quality palliative care has never been as critical. 

Palliative Care Queensland (PCQ) provides information and education with an aim to raise awareness, advocate and ensure quality care is provided to all at the end of life. PCQ is an independent not-for-profit peak body representing palliative care providers, consumers and their families and those with an interest in palliative care in Queensland. Established in 1988, PCQ has supported thousands of people living with chronic and life-limiting condition and those who care for them.
