Palliative Care Queensland is governed by a board of nine State Council members, who are volunteers and  members of Palliative Care Queensland and who have been elected by the membership to manage the organization.

Within the State Council sits the Executive Committee (Management Committee), comprising the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer.

The Chief Executive Officer is appointed by State Council to manage the day to day operations of the organisation and to ensure that the organisation's strategic and operational objectives are realised. The CEO reports directly to the Executive Committee.

Palliative Care Queensland also maintains five Strategic Reference Groups, focusing on each of the strategic focus areas. A state council general member chairs each of these Strategic Reference Groups.
