Organiser Palliative Care Queensland

Organiser of FREE Community Education Webinar: VAD in the context of a terminal illness

Palliative Care Queensland (PCQ) is a leading charity and independent peak body representing palliative care providers, consumers and their families and those with an interest in palliative care in Queensland. PCQ was established in 1988 and is a membership-based organisation, supporting the individuals, families, carers, community members, as well as specialist and generalist health care professionals working with Queenslanders experiencing serious illness, dying, death and grief. Collectively, the PCQ membership body holds tremendous knowledge and wisdom about the challenges the sector faces and the opportunities those challenges can bring. PCQ is a founding member of Palliative Care Australia.

Our belief: The way we care for our dying is a significant indicator of our society’s values

Our mission: Quality care at the end of life for all

Our vision: to hear Queensland community members say:

“I live in a community where everybody recognises that we all have a role to play in supporting each other in times of loss, ageing, dying and grief. We are ready, willing and confident to have conversations about living, ageing, dying and grieving well, and to support each other in emotional and practical ways”.

PCQ is committed to hosting an inclusive event. We want everyone to feel welcome. We encourage people of all genders, gender identities and expressions, nationalities, sexual orientations, ages, cultural backgrounds, and religions (or lack thereof) to attend. We are committed to supporting our participants' accessibility needs. Please contact the team if you have any special needs that we should be aware of for this event.
