Preparing for the future of children’s hospice & palliative care -Free

This checklist is based and draws heavily upon the excellent work of the Commission into the Future of Hospice Care, and its final report which was published in October 2013. 

Together for Short Lives convened a one day event in July 2013 to work with the children's hospice and palliative care sector to address the implications of the emerging findings of the Commission for the sector and we suggest that this checklist should be addressed in conjunction with the report from the day.

This short document provides a checklist tool that can be used as a starting point to stimulate such debate. It is intended to inform the strategic development of services that are future proof, delivering care to the highest possible standard to all the babies,children, young people and their families who need it.
