Established in 2006, the Texas Pediatric Palliative Care Consortium (TPPCC) is a statewide coalition of interdisciplinary pediatric palliative care providers, advocates, and parent representatives. TPPCC’s mission is to optimize the quality of life for children living with life-threatening conditions (CLWLTC) and their families in Texas, without regard to care setting, family demographics, or financial status. Texas Pediatric Palliative Care Consortium goals include:
Collaboration - Enhance the caregiving capacity of health care providers for CLWLTC throughout Texas by sharing resources and information on the development and delivery of pediatric palliative care services.
Advocacy - Enhance the awareness of health care administrators, state agencies and legislators regarding the need for optimal family-centered pediatric palliative care for CLWLTC in Texas.
Research - Optimize the capacity of families and health care providers to care for CLWLTC by increasing the evidence base for family-centered pediatric palliative care through collaborative research.
Education - Enhance the capacity for the delivery of optimal family-centered and pediatric palliative care through the education of families and health care providers on practices and principles of family-centered and pediatric palliative care.
Support Services – Support the TPPCC Workgroup goals through administrative activities that expand the capacity of the organization.
