Kids in Palliative Care website launched

  • May 28, 2015

The NSW Paediatric Palliative Care Programme launched their new website during National Palliative Care Week. The NSW Paediatric Palliative Care Programme brings together the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (Randwick and Westmead) and the John Hunter Children's Hospital (Newcastle)

The website has lots of resources for family carers and health professionals. And information on Volunteer Support.

Launching the website, Minister Jillian Skinner said “the reason I made this a priority … was because I met many families, many individuals, affected by this need for greater support…but also through my own experience I had the privilege of spending the dying hours with my very best friend many years ago now and I remember, absolutely, the tremendous support that was provided to her, but also to us who were with her, through the teams that were providing that support.”

Well done to the team and presenters on launch-day!
