For families

  • Palliative Care Australia has launched an updated resource to provide practical information about paediatric palliative care to families who have a child with a life-limiting illness, as well as the people who support them. Information is also available for health professionals to better support families and provide quality paediatric palliative care.

    Paediatric palliative care enables the baby, child or young adult to live in an environment where curative treatment can be part of their life, but not their entire focus. It aims to provide the best quality of life through a holistic approach which supports the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of the child and their family.

    Guidance and information on the website is categorised by; Diagnosis/recognition, Ongoing/Palliative Care, End of Life, and Bereavement.

    Paediatric Palliative Care Resource

    Palliative Care Australia (PCA) has collaborated with the Paediatric Palliative Care Australia and New Zealand Corporation to update and develop resources to support people needing and providing paediatric palliative care.
