[16]      Eastern Palliative Care is an organisation that was developed following the competitive tendering of community based palliative care in 1997. Three agencies—the Order of Malta, St Vincent's Melbourne and Melbourne East Palliative Care Association—tendered for the right to provide services. They were successful and invited Outer East Palliative Care Service to be part of EPC so that the new organisation could provide services right across the entire eastern region of 2,963 square kilometres, and that includes a lot of metropolitan areas. Since 1997, members of these partner bodies have been the governing body.

Chapter 10 - Accessing equipment

[1]        The HACC program, which was previously jointly funded by the federal and state and territory governments, became a federal government program from 1 July 2012.  HACC services can be accessed by people aged 65 years and over (or 50 and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people), who are at risk of premature or inappropriate admission to long term residential care, and carers of older Australians eligible for services under the Commonwealth HACC Program.

[5]        State and Territory governments will continue to fund and administer basic community care services for people under 65 years and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged under 50 years. This change in responsibility applies to all states and territories except Western Australia and Victoria who are not participating in the reforms to HACC. Basic community care services for frail older people and younger people with disability in Victoria and Western Australia will continue to be delivered under the Home and Community Care Program as a joint Commonwealth-State funded program, until otherwise agreed.
