The care forum, called PaedPalCare, is the go to place if you want to want to seek expert advice from the world’s most prominent children’s palliative care practitioners and join in the discussion about new innovations and approaches to caring for babies, children and young people with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. The Care Forum is free and fully moderated.
