The Association for Paediatric Palliative Medicine represents doctors working in paediatric palliative care across all care settings in the UK 

About us 
 
APPM represents all Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals working in the area of Paediatric Palliative Medicine in hospital, hospice and community settings. It seeks to support practice and training for all doctors and other health professionals working in this area of medicine. 
 
The APPM was formed in November 2009 following a merger of 
the Children's Hospice UK doctors' group and the British Society for Paediatric Palliative Medicine (BSPPM) 
News 
We are excited to announce that the Annual APPM study day and research day is planned for 9th and 10th June 2022 in Birmingham after nearly two years! It is a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues and perhaps even learn something! 
 
At the study day we will be launching the new APPM Clinical Guidelines and see the revamped national CYACP document. 
 
We look forward to see you there.
