Children’s Palliative Care Webinar Series

We offer a webinar series on children’s palliative care which is usually held for 1.5 hours every month on the third Thursday of the month from 1-2.30pm UK time, although the time may vary depending on which time zones the presenters are in so please check each session. We appreciate the time will not be convenient for everyone, due to work commitments and the different time zones, so we will be recording them and making them available here on our website, and via YouTube so that you can join us later if you are unable to join us live.

Our next webinar will be held on Thursday 20th April 2023 from 11-12.30pm UK time. (Please note earlier time) Please do join us as we look at advanced care planning
