Planning end-of-life and palliative care to support patients with a life limiting illness requires MBS remuneration to support care.
A number of Primary Health Networks (PHN) have developed resources to guide GPs in the use of MBS items to support palliative care and end of life care in residential aged care and in the community. It may be useful to contact your local PHN and/or HealthPathway.
The Primary Health Care pages include information on remuneration for palliative care services.
