2nd International Children’s Palliative Care Conference
Registration is now open for the 2nd Children’s Palliative Care Conference; Building Bridges – Home, Hospital & Hospice
Following the success of the 2013 conference, the conference aims to continue to build on the knowledge and share the expertise of those who work in children’s palliative care.
Children’s Palliaitive Care is a new evolving speciality in its own right. In Ireland, it is estimated that over 3,840 children are living with a life-limiting condition and on average 320 children die each year. The majority of these deaths are in the first few days, weeks and months of life. Making sure that these children with life-limiting conditions and their families receive the best possible palliative care requires collaboration between many stakeholders.
The eight partners (HSE, IAPC, Irish Hospice Foundation, Jack & Jill, LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, Mercy University Hospital, National University Galway and Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin) offer an invaluable learning opportunity for those working in children’s palliative care on how we can continue to build a united palliative care service and a greater understanding of family care needs.
The conference programme reflects the range of services, knowledge and approaches to caring for a child and their family. Those involved in organising and presenting at this conference recognise that working together is the best way to achieve excellence in care for children and their families.
This conference is for Health Professionals only.< Back to News
