The ChiPPs Program:
From November 1998 to December 2001 more than thirty international leaders in the field of pediatric palliative care collaborated with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization to develop the Children's International Project on Palliative/Hospice Services. Project participants have worked to make the best-known practices in the field of pediatric palliative care more widely available to care providers by addressing issues of ethics and decision-making; clinical care; pain and symptom management; psychosocial, spiritual, and bereavement as well as education, policy, and administrative challenges.
Promoting Excellence in End-of-Life Care was a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation dedicated to long-term changes in health care institutions to substantially improve care for dying people and their families.
