We need your help to improve palliative care for infants, children and young people and their families.

Palliative Care Australia (PCA) was successful in securing $3.25 million in funding over three years to lead and deliver the aims of the National Paediatric Palliative Action Plan Project (Project) election commitment, in collaboration with Paediatric Palliative Care Australia and New Zealand (PaPCANZ)

There is a strong sense of enthusiasm around the opportunities that this Project, and partnership, create for strengthening collaboration between stakeholders and families, including improving information and services for families with children with high medical needs and life-limiting conditions.

The Paediatric Palliative Care Project Team is establishing a stakeholder engagement group to participate in consultation activities during the project. Professionals working in services supporting children and teenagers with life-limiting conditions and their families are invited to complete a survey and register their interest.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Paediatric Palliative Care Project Team on paediatrics@palliativecare.org.au.

Your contribution will help shape the future of paediatric palliative care in Australia.
