Who We Are
The Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education (CPCRE) was established by Queensland Health in 2001 to enhance palliative care services in Queensland through education and research. Palliative care is an approach that improves quality of life of patients and their families facing problems associated with life threatening illness, through prevention of suffering by early identification, and impeccable assessment and treatment of, pain and other problems, physical, psychological and spiritual, allowing people a dignified death.
What we do
CPCRE works collaboratively with many other palliative care organisations, including:
Our work focuses on:
- Developing capacity of the palliative care workforce to provide quality palliative care
- Improving links between research and practice in palliative care
- Undertaking research to enhance the quality of palliative care
- Providing information which supports delivery of palliative care services
