The Together for Short Lives National Conference 25 & 26 March 2020, Hilton Manchester Deansgate, UK 

Children’s palliative care is changing. 
 
The number of babies, children and young people requiring palliative care is growing – advances in medical technology mean more babies are surviving longer, and young people are living longer into adulthood. 
 
The commissioning and funding environment is changing and it’s harder to se-cure statutory funding for respite care. 
 
At the same time, children’s palliative care is under fire – we are seeing more and more high profile complex ethical challenges around continuing or withdrawing life-sustaining treatment that impact on our work with children and families. 
 
Our conference will bring together children’s palliative care professionals to explore what this changing landscape means for staff and services, and how we can prepare and adapt our practice, services and workforce to deliver the best care to seriously ill children and families.
