Expected outcomes

The Quality of Care Collaborative Australia 2 (QuoCCA 2) continues the project work commenced in 2015-2017 to enhance the quality of paediatric palliative care delivery and providing support for children and young people with life limiting conditions, their families and their care communities.

The project seeks to bring about improvements in skills, knowledge and confidence of health professionals involved in delivery of paediatric palliative care across Australia, through delivery of education and research.

Improvements in timely and appropriate access to, and quality of, paediatric palliative care in acute and community settings across Australia will be achieved.

Learning options

  • Education sessions – scheduled multidisciplinary sessions can be arranged at any metropolitan, regional, rural or even remote setting.  Half or full day workshops are available. 
  • Pop-up – we can come to you! A team of specialist paediatric palliative care teams and educators can visit for education around a specific case consult as guided by the child, family and/or local health team. 
  • Self-paced On-line learning module: Communicating with families about children who have life-limiting conditions

Target audience

Any health professional, including medical, nursing and allied health, or local community supports (e.g. chaplains, teachers, funeral directors) with an interest in supporting children with palliative care needs.
