Palliative Care South Australia Inc (PCSA) is a community based organisation. We welcome new members from across the community; people affected by terminal illness, people who work in palliative care; or people who simply have an interest in quality end of life care.
Membership provides an opportunity to work collaboratively on issues relating to palliative care. It provides opportunity for peer support and joint approaches to Government and other relevant organisations and provides health care professionals, clinical staff and the public with information, resources and educational and networking opportunities.
