Research in the Children’s Palliative Care sector

Together for Short Lives is committed to fostering a culture in which academic research flourishes in the children’s palliative care sector. We want to encourage innovation and best practice in the sector to increase the quality of patient care and experience.

To assist children’s palliative care professionals on these pages we provide an up to date repository of published literature in children’s palliative care. We are also proud to host the ‘CoPPAR’ research toolkit, that was developed by a collaborative sector network, led by Martin House Research Centre.

Ensuring that seriously ill children and young people and their families are able to take part in research and contribute their lived experience is hugely important. We are committed to helping researchers by sharing appropriate requests through our wide membership in the sector, and our own family community.
