New NSW Paediatric Palliative Care Programme website launched
A new paediatric palliative care website was launched by the Hon. Jillian Skinner MP, Minister for Health yesterday.
The website, which aims to support families across NSW to care for a child living with a life-limiting illness, was funded by the ACI and the NSW Paediatric Palliative Care Programme.
It supports the vision for paediatric palliative pare in NSW which states that “Every child in NSW has access to appropriate, high quality, coordinated and culturally appropriate palliative care that meets their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs, and their family are supported through the course of the illness and after the death of the child” (Reference: NSW PPC Planning Framework, 2011-2014).
The website includes contact details for paediatric palliative care services across NSW as well as information, resources and practical resources for health professionals, parents and carers.
