Approximately 29,500 Queenslanders die each year and despite most people expressing their wish to die at home or in a hospice, the vast majority die in hospital.
PCQ is calling for:
- A specialist palliative care workforce which meets nationally recommended level of care
- Supporting the growth of Queensland Compassionate Communities
- Creating a Statewide Palliative Care Volunteer Hub
- Improving accountability and transparency, service efficiency and effectiveness.
