Palliative Care Queensland

Palliative Care Queensland (PCQ) is an independent not-for-profit peak body with charitable status representing the people who care for Queenslanders living with life limiting conditions. Queensland Compassionate Communities (QCC) is the community arm of Palliative Care.

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 has been operating for over 30 years, has over 400 members and is a founding member of Palliative Care Australia. PCQ members include health professionals across all sectors of health, specialist and generalist palliative care services, aged care, disability care, peak bodies, as well as consumers and interested members of the Queensland community. Collectively, the PCQ membership body holds tremendous knowledge and wisdom about the challenges the sector faces and the opportunities those challenges can bring.
