October 2022 Budget Submission

Drawing on our 2022-2023 Pre-Budget Submission and the Palliative Care Australia (PCA) Roadmap 2022 – 2027, this October 2022 Budget Submission outlines some urgent areas of investment for the palliative care sector.

In making this submission, PCA’s priorities are in alignment with the Government’s five-point plan to put security, dignity, quality and humanity back into aged care.

PCA's priorities:

    1. Build on the Government’s plan to have Registered Nurses 24/7 in residential aged care ensuring they have essential palliative care skills
    2. Fund a National Palliative Care Workforce Strategy
    3. Support the palliative care sector with a commitment to fund the peak body for palliative care in Australia
