Palliative Care Australia

This is the national peak body for palliative care in Australia, and works towards the relief of pain and suffering of dying people in Australia and the provision of the care they need. Palliative care is about caring for people with a terminal illness as well as their families and friends. It is given when treatment to cure an illness won't work any longer. It aims to ease the pain, distress and many other physical, emotional and spiritual problems that are present with a terminal illness. The website offers useful links to state organisations.
