PCA Submission to the Medical Research Future Fund 2018-2020 Priorities Consultation

This submission by PCA responds to the Medical Research Future Fund 2018-2020 Priorities Consultation. The investment in research relating to palliative care is a highly important issue to PCA. The submission discusses gaps in knowledge and areas to be considered for future research, including: research into the impacts of early referral to palliative care for non-malignant life-limiting illnesses; evidence for off label use of medicines in palliative care; and research into the health system benefits of grief and bereavement support.
