KPMG Palliative Care Economic Report

This report, Investing to Save – The economics of increased investment in palliative care in Australia, was commissioned with the assistance of  The Snow Foundation by Palliative Care Australia and prepared by KPMG.

The report calls for an overhaul of the palliative care system in Australia, including an additional annual investment of just over $350 million, which will result in a saving of over $450 million across the broader health care system every year.

The report also calls for a national agreement on palliative care between the Commonwealth and the states and territories, and a new full-time Palliative Care Commissioner, to help create the best experience possible for those with life-limiting conditions and those around them.

The report has been released as part of National Palliative Care Week.
