We also work with the Victorian Government and other relevant organisations. We make submissions, contribute to policy development and seek the funding needed to ensure Victoria has a strong palliative care service capable of providing high quality palliative care and end of life care to all Victorians, when and where they need it.
As a founding and active member of Palliative Care Australia, we also contribute advice on a range of national palliative care policies and programs.
