Paediatric Palliative Care Discussion Paper

One of the key activities for the Paediatric National Action Plan Project is to develop a National Paediatric Palliative Care Plan.  

The first step in the development of the National Paediatric Palliative Care Plan was to complete a Literature Review. The Paediatric Palliative Care National Action Plan Project Background Literature Review can be found here.

The next step in the process was to develop a Discussion Paper.  

The Discussion Paper has been developed on the information that has been found in the Literature Review about paediatric palliative care. The purpose of the Discussion Paper is to test if there are any gaps or differences in the findings from the research with the lived experience of consumers, as well as the experiences of health professionals and support organisations. The Discussion Paper will include some background information as well as a series of questions.
