ICPCN – INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S PALLIATIVE CARE NETWORK
The ICPCN is the only international organisation that networks individuals and organisations that work in children’s palliative care. We share a vision that the total needs of life-threatened or life-limited children should be met to encompass physical, emotional, spiritual and developmental aspects of care. Our mission is to achieve the best quality of life and care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, their families and carers worldwide, by raising awareness of children’s palliative care, lobbying for the global development of children’s palliative care services, and sharing expertise, skills and knowledge. We believe that no child with a life-limiting condition should suffer unnecessarily and that palliative care is a professional and compassionate response to a child’s suffering.
