PCA response to Productivity Commission Draft Report - June 2017
This submission by PCA to the Productivity Commission, responds to the Introducing Competition and Informed User Choice into Human Services: Reforms to Human Services, Productivity Commission Draft Report. PCA strongly endorses all five of the Commission's draft recommendations related to end-of-life care. PCA are pleased that the Productivity Commission has formally acknowledged that few people in Australia are able to access high quality community-based palliative care. Further the draft report states that without significant policy reform, tens of thousands of Australians will die in a way and in a place that does not reflect their values or their choices.
