The Palliative Care Clinical Network is a broad network of health professionals, health organisations and consumers who are committed to working collaboratively to identify, implement and deliver best practice palliative care to people with a life-limiting illness.
The network aims to ensure delivery of best practice palliative care across Victoria, which means it:
- is integrated early in the course of a progressive illness, not just at end of life
- acknowledges and respects each patients unique needs, values and wishes and these guide care planning and decision making
- provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms as well as integrating psychosocial and spiritual aspects of care
- enhances quality of life and helps people to live as actively as possible until death
- supports the caregiver and the family as well as the patient
- is accessible to all regardless of age, illness, general, cultural background or geographical location.
