ICPCN - International Children's Palliative Care Network - e-bulettin July 2015
The 7th International Cardiff Conference on Paediatric Palliative Care ended last Friday, 10 July 2015 and was declared a great success by those in attendance. The conference theme was "Medicine and Compassion: Tool for the Task...Or Dangerous Distraction?

In his summation, Dr Richard Hain said "If you had to use one phrase that summed up what we have been talking about, it is this:Compassion is...intelligent kindness."
