This website of the North and West Metropolitan Region Palliative Care Consortium is designed as a palliative care information hub for people working in health and community services, including primary care, aged care, hospitals, local government and disability services.

As outlined in the Victorian Government’s end of life and palliative care framework, quality end of life and palliative care is “everyone’s responsibility” and requires strong understanding and cooperation between people working in the health and community services sector and specialist palliative care services.

Key resources on the site include:

There are also sections devoted to aged care and palliative care and disability and palliative care. There is a resources section for GP teams and another on clinical resources, training and education.

For people living with a life limiting illness and their family and friends (carers), a good starting point for information is Palliative Care Victoria. The Victorian Government’s Better Health Channel section on end of life and palliative care includes a range of helpful information. We have also included a selection of Carer Resources on this site.

We welcome your feedback on the website, including enhancements you’d like us to consider. Email your feedback to or use our website feedback form.
