Palliative Care South Australia Inc (PCSA) is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1984 with a state wide remit dedicated to supporting people living with terminal illness and those who care for them through influencing, fostering and promoting access to quality palliative care for all. 
PCSA achieves its mission by promoting resilience and well-being in response to end of life issues and encourages people to build their death literacy.  We do this by maintaining an up to date website with palliative care service contact details, resources, news and information, by hosting events and activities that raise death literacy and awareness about hospice and palliative care philosophy.
PCSA makes its largest charitable contribution to palliative care by maintaining hard copy stocks of palliative care information.  Over 30,000 pamphlets and information booklets are distributed annually. 

PCSA also maintains information on local training courses and a range of other national publications including the palliative care standards
