The Latest Children’s Project on Palliative/Hospice Services e-Journal is out!

Check out the November 2017 edition of the ChiPPS E-journal. 

This edition of our E-Journal offers a collection of articles that explore selected issues related to perinatal and neonatal palliative/hospice care of children and their families. We recognize that offering care at these early points in life is an important aspect of pediatric palliative/hospice services. As well, we appreciate that such care is offered in many different ways. A single issue on this subject will not do full justice to this subject area. Still, we were a bit surprised to receive a larger-than-ordinary collection of contributions for this issue. Consequently, we hope that the articles in this issue will spur increased awareness and discussion of these subjects. We welcome communications from anyone who has more to offer on these subjects.

This E-Journal is produced by ChiPPS (the Children’s Project on Palliative/Hospice Services), a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and, in particular, by NHPCO’s E-Journal Work Group, co-chaired by Christy Torkildson and Ann Fitzsimons. Archived issues of this publication are available at
Comments about the activities of ChiPPS, its E-Journal Work Group, or this issue are welcomed. We also encourage readers to suggest topics, contributors, and specific ideas for future issues. Please contact Christy Torkildson at or Ann Fitzsimons at
