Paediatric palliative care toolkit phone app launched

Categories: Care.

The toolkit, first produced by the West Midlands Paediatric Palliative Care Network in 2011 and updated in 2012, was developed with the aim of making resources, tools and documentation to support best practice available to staff whatever the care setting and whatever the time of day or night care is required.

It covers all ages from newborn to young adult life and is based on symptoms and needs rather than any particular diagnoses.

The toolkit contains guidance and resources relevant when delivering palliative care, drawing on best practice from across the United Kingdom – including guidance from Together for Short Lives and the Association of Paediatric Palliative Medicine Master Formulary.

Now the toolkit can be download as an app from iTunes, it allows for offline acces anywhere.
