Welcome to Palliative Care Nurses Australia
Palliative Care Nurses Australia (PCNA) is a unique membership organisation for all nurses working with people who are dying and their families. Membership is open to specialist palliative care nurses AND those who work in non-specialist roles in the care of people at end of life. Nurses work in a variety of settings - including (but not limited to) palliative care units, hospices, community, acute hospitals, residential aged care facilities and universities.
PCNA supports all nurses (including AINs, ENs, RNs, research and academic nurses) to continue their compassionate work with the dying person and their family as they journey through the experience of life limiting illness.
PCNA keeps its members up to date with the latest palliative care issues, both nationally and internationally through:
- Biennial Conference - next in Canberra 11-12 September 2016 at Hotel Realm
- International Journal of Palliative Nursing
- Regular e-newsletter
- Website with latest events and resources
- Individualised emails to members

The core business of CRANAplus is to educate, support and advocate for all health professionals working in the remote sector of Australia. They are the only member based, National health organisation that has remote health as its sole focus, making us the remote health experts. This specialisation allows us to provide the unique education and support that is vital for staff to be equipped and able to remain within the remote health workforce.
CRANAplus recently developed a position paper on Palliative Care which the PCNA Executive PCNA would like to congratulate CRANAplus for taking the initiative to develop this position statement and for their commitment to enhancing the provision of best evidenced based palliative care for people with palliative care needs living in rural and remote Australia.
The paper has been endorsed by PCNA until 31 December 2017.
