National palliative care performance indicators: results of the 2007 performance indicator data collection

10 Jun 2008

This report presents the findings of the 2007 national collection of performance indicator data from Australia's palliative care sector, and comparisons with the results of previous collections in 2005 and 2006. Some characteristics of palliative care agencies are also described. The information was collected to calculate four nationally agreed performance indicators that were developed by representatives of the states and territories and the Australian Government through the Palliative Care Intergovernmental Forum. The indicators are based on the goals and objectives of the National Palliative Care Strategy, and provide information on the extent to which the strategy has been implemented in areas such as strategic planning, use of standards, collection of feedback and formation of partnerships.
