Digital care forum

Join Together for Short Lives’ Digital Care Forum to share expert advice and seek opinion from children’s palliative care professionals across the globe. Our digital care forum is a safe and private web-based platform that connects like-minded professionals who want to share, exchange and discuss children’s palliative care approaches.

The group is open to any practitioner or professional with an interest in children’s palliative care. It’s a free and private space that helps professionals to support one another in their work caring for seriously ill children. The forum is the go-to place if you want to seek or give expert children’s palliative care advice.
