Providing high quality palliative care for our children: a strategy for children’s palliative and end-of-life care 2016-26
The strategy recommends a series of actions to enhance the existing care and support available for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families. To achieve this, the strategy contains 23 clear objectives that must be realised to transform children’s palliative care in Northern Ireland. A ‘New Care Model’ set out in the strategy identifies that the child, their family and carer must be at the centre of their care and that their care plan should be based on a holistic assessment of the child’s needs.
