National consensus statement: essential elements for safe and high-quality paediatric end-of-life care

The purpose of the National consensus statement: essential elements for safe and high-quality paediatric end-of-life care (the Consensus Statement) is to describe the elements that are essential for delivering safe and high-quality end-of-life care to children in Australia.

This Consensus Statement has been adapted from the National consensus statement: Essential elements for safe and high-quality end-of-life care with a similar philosophy underpinning both documents however the Consensus Statement acknowledges that there are additional considerations, principles and actions required to provide optimal care to children at the end of life.
