The NSW Paediatric Programme

Vision for Paediatric Palliative Care in NSW

“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)
