The CoPPAR Toolkit

The CoPPAR Toolkit is a set of resources that brings together advice and best practice for conducting research in the children’s palliative care sector.

The resources aim to support you if you are a care professional looking to have a career in children’s palliative care, a palliative care service or team who want to conduct research in your own setting, or if you just want to find out more about research in this sector.

Each resource in the toolkit has been added as a separate resource in our library – they are linked to below, or you can find them all in our resource library using the ‘research’ tag.

Glossary of research terms

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) has a useful glossary of research terms on its website and there is another useful library of research terms on Research Connection’s website.


This toolkit has been funded and designed as part of the National Institute for Health and Care Research Collaborative Paediatric Palliative Care Research (CoPPAR ) Network.
