As the leading voice for our membership, we work vigorously to ensure that every person in NSW will have access to quality care that addresses their physical, psychological and spiritual needs as they approach and reach the end of life.

As a health professional, we aim to equip you with evidence-based resources and connect you with networks, to help you better serve the palliative care community.
