Current research projects
Paediatric Palliative & Supportive Care Research Group
The Cancer and Palliative Care Outcomes Centre is also closely affiliated with the Paediatric Palliative & Supportive Care Research Group (PPSCRG), a multidisciplinary group of clinicians and researchers with strong national and international collaborations.
The PPSCRG aims to provide national leadership in research initiatives that support paediatric palliative and supportive care across Australia. With activities ranging from foundational research to workforce development initiatives, the PPSCRG will enhance the capacity for evidence-based practice that optimises the care provided to children with life-limiting, or life-threatening conditions and their families.
