480 New Research Abstracts Available on the Together for Short Lives website

Categories: Research.

The abstracts are drawn from a vast number of medical, nursing and social care journals and provide an invaluable resource for those who are interested in research across the spectrum of children’s hospice and palliative care.


The articles have been collated by a team of children’s palliative care experts and provide a useful tool to support care professionals with practice, research and project development. The resource is especially helpful for identifying information about rare and obscure topics. Care professionals can access these abstracts by searching the online database by author, title, date or key word.

The latest children’s palliative care abstracts will be updated twice a year online and Together for Short Lives also publishes these abstracts twice a year in a collection called Synopsis (previously PaedPalLit) which is available to Together for Short Lives members.
