End of the 'Do Just One Thing for CPC' campaign - our final report

A recent study published in the Journal of Palliative Medicine revealed that 71% of adults in the United States had never heard of palliative care. It is our experience that ignorance about children's pallaitive care is even more widespread.

It often feels as if we are 'whistling in the wind' when working to raise the profile of the vital work of children's palliative care providers and children's hospices. Not only do we remind people of the 'taboo' topic of death, particularly as it pertains to children, we know that there are many other tragic and equally deserving causes out there competing for the same funding from the same compassionate people. We thank you for acknowledging and caring about ICPCN and about palliative care for children.

The 'Do Just One Thing' for Children's Pallaitive Care GlobalGiving campaign managed to raise just over $1000 towards the education work of our organisation and we have decided it is time to bring it to a close.  

Over the years your money has helped us to reach many thousands of children.

To date, ICPCN has provided face to face training for over 1,000 health care professionals. Additionally, more than 3,500 people have signed up for one or more of the modules on our e-learning platform. If we consider that after receiving training each of these people provided improved and more holistic and compassionate care for just 10 children with a life-limiing or life-threatenting illness, potentially we will have impacted the lives of more than 45,000 children globally.

For this reason we cannot underestimate or undervalue the educational element of our work. 

We have created a new GlobalGiving campaign with a focus on improving pain assessment and pain management in children. Please do visit our website to learn more and help us achieve our vision that all children living with life-limiting or life-threatenting conditions, and their families, will have seamless access to palliative care in order to alleviate serious health-related suffering and enhance their quality of life.  

Thank you once again for your generosity. ICPCN relies entirely on charitable funding and donations in order to continue doing the work we do, and this is becoming more and more difficult to source. 

Don't forget to join us for our 6th annual 'Hats On for CPC Day' to raise awareness and funds by wearing a hat to work or school on 11 October.
