CFH1 Research - Specialist Paediatric Palliative Care Input for Children with Malignancies

Project: Other projectOther internal award

Project Details


Cancer is the second most common cause of death in children in the UK. However, previous research shows that very few children have involvement of specialist paediatric palliative care services prior to death. This study aims to summarise the evidence from previous studies about the benefits or difficulties, and barriers or facilitators, to the involvement of specialist paediatric palliative care in children with cancer, and gain the opinions of key stakeholders as to how services should be provided. This will then enable us to develop a grant application to develop, and evaluate, an intervention/model of care.
