I am interested in becoming a National Panel member
Palliative Care Australia (PCA) is not currently not accepting applications for the National Palliative Care Consumer and Carer Panel.
If you would like to enquire about future opportunities to participate in the panel please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 02 6232 0700.
PCA endeavours to develop a diverse and representative consumer national panel of people who have personal experience of palliative care and want to help improve care for other people.
In partnership with Consumer Health Forum of Australia, PCA will host annual education opportunities for panel members. This training will provide panel members with sector insights, developing their knowledge of palliative care issues and networks, and empowering them to participate in strategic decision making and governance of health services and projects.
Panel membership is open to people who have a life-limiting illness, or who care for or support someone with a life-limiting illness, either presently or in the past.
Prospective panel members are expected to have and demonstrate proficiency in:
- The capacity and commitment to actively participate in the program
- The capacity to represent consumer and carer issues beyond their own personal experience
