ABSTRACT
The article reports that the extra $4.7 million for palliative care will be provided to hospices in New Zealand. Such move is from the New Zealand Nurses Organization (NZNO) Mark Lennox, who involved in a negotiation with the hospice multi-employer collective agreement (MECA). Hospices are said to be needing a consistent funding mechanism from district health boards. Such hospices involved in a negotiation had received letters from the NZNO and copies of the MECA and are reminded to return them.
