“Paediatric palliative care aims to provide the best quality of life for neonates, infants, children and adolescents faced with life threatening conditions. Caring for young people with life limiting conditions brings specific demands and challenges. Working together to overcome misconceptions about the role of palliative care is essential to providing quality care to paediatric and adolescent patients.” ~ Palliative Care Australia
