2018-10-14: CCF News - Children’s Palliative Care Foundation Officially Established / Exchange of Information through Children’s Palliative Care Symposium


Since 1999, the children’s palliative care team of Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) has been providing 24/7 palliative and home care services such as symptoms relief, emotional support and bereavement care to young patients with advanced cancer.  In launching a pilot project to provide palliative home care services to non-cancer patients with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses in 2011, we are aware that these patients have even greater needs for palliative home care support. Hence, the Children’s Palliative Care Foundation (CPCF), an entity owned by CCF was established this year to provide quality palliative and home care services not only to child cancer patients but also to non-cancer seriously ill patients.

 

 

 

 

A Children’s Palliative Care Symposium 2018 was held at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University on October 14 with an aim to bring together interested parties from local and overseas together with parents of children with life-limiting illness to have an open dialogue, under one roof, to exchange and discuss the current situation and challenges of children’s palliative care in Hong Kong.
