Welcome to the Centre for Palliative Care
The Centre for Palliative Care is part of St. Vincent’s Hospital and is a Collaborative Centre of The University of Melbourne, Australia.
The Centre has a state-wide role in palliative care education and research in Victoria, with networks and collaborative projects extending nationally and internationally.
The Centre plays a pivotal role in the development and implementation of training and education programs for health professionals from a variety of disciplines, while undertaking cutting-edge research to set benchmarks and improve practices in palliative care.
Our work receives core funding from the Victorian Government Department of Health, research funding from Victorian and Australian Government agencies and other funding bodies, revenue from student fees and funding for special purposes from the Centre for Palliative Care Foundation.
