Description

Have we under invested in Palliative Care?

Aligning policy objectives and payment design in palliative care FORUM

PRESENTER: Stephen Duckett, Director, Health Program, Grattan Institute

Funding arrangements for palliative care are not optimal. People miss out on needed care, and the health system doesn’t function as well as it should because people end up in intensive care when they would have preferred to be looked after at home.

If palliative care is to become a universally accessible service, new approaches to funding, based on the experience of funding reforms in other parts of the health system, need to be adopted. Payment models for palliative care should move toward activity-based funding using an agreed classification, be uncapped funding with performance monitoring, and make explicit use of performance metrics and reporting.
