Life, Love and Loss

  • A podcast for families caring for a child who is dying

    This five-part series focuses on the experience of parents of children who have died or are likely to have a short life. Despite advances in health care, children and young people still sadly die from a range of life limiting conditions. The parents in this series have been supported by palliative care teams to face multiple challenges in caring for their children. These parents bravely share the love and beauty of their children and the joy and sadness of their individual experiences. The parents in this series hope that their voices can support, inform, and better prepare other families who may need to face similar challenges. This podcast series is a collaborative project funded by the Quality of Care Collaborative Australia (QuoCCA) in partnership with The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne and the Victorian Paediatric Palliative Care Program. We warmly thank the parents who have generously taken part in this series.
