The following is an Australian Web-site which has been a collaboration between The Palliative Care Team at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne and Palliative Care Australia and Paediatric Palliative Care Australia and New Zealand.

The web-site has been launched by the Federal Minister of Health Mr Greg Hunt in January this year.

This is an extremely user friendly web site which provides support for so many different carers, families and health professionals for all childhood illnesses not just oncology. Whilst the web-site is orientated around Australian practices and protocols it provides information that may be helpful to families who are  thinking about or preparing for palliative care.
