What is the Community Charter Award?2020-08-25T20:57:42+10:00

The Tasmanian Palliative Care Community Charter is the result of extensive consultations with Tasmanian service providers and community members, including Tasmanian Aboriginals and people from a range of cultures and social groups. The following principles reflect the voices of Tasmanians about what matters most to them.
The award is open to any individual or organisation supporting Tasmanians with a life-limiting illness and their families. This is an individual or organisation that has demonstrated excellence in embedding one or more of the
Charter Principals into practice.

The Charter is built on a Compassionate Communities approach, which recognises that palliative care is an important, shared responsibility for all Tasmanians. At the end of life, we all need to know that services and resources are available to us, our carers and other people who are important to us.

The Charter demonstrates our shared commitment to advocate for compassionate and quality palliative care.
The Tasmanian community and service providers are committed to the following principles:

  • Relief from Pain and Other Causes of Distress
  • Respect, Dignity and Person-Centred Care
  • Good Communication
  • Coordination of Care
  • Place of Care and Place of Death
  • Fair Access to Care
  • Help with Planning End-of-Life Care
  • Support for People Important to Us
  • Support for the Unique Needs of Children, Young People and our Families
  • Support for Aboriginal People in Tasmania
