Paediatric Palliative Care in WA

WA Health recently launched two documents related to paediatric palliative care – Western Australian Paediatric Strategy for End-of-Life and Palliative Care 2021-2028 and the Western Australian Optimal Paediatric Palliative Care Pathway.

Both were developed in collaboration between the Paediatric Palliative Care Project Group and the End-of-Life Care Program following an extensive statewide consultation.

The Paediatric Strategy provides strategic direction for paediatric end-of-life and palliative care and is closely aligned to the WA End-of-Life and Palliative Care Strategy 2018-2028. The Optimal Paediatric Palliative Care Pathway is a complementary document to the Strategy and aims to improve access, equity, outcomes and experiences for children and their families who are living with life-limiting illness.
