On November 12, NINR hosted a Twitter Chat on Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC). The goal of the chat was to spark a conversation about PPC and share resources related to Palliative Care: Conversations Matter®, a public awareness campaign for families of children with serious illnesses. The chat highlighted campaign materials, including newly released family stories and an infographic.

A variety of participants added their perspective to the chat, including government organizations, advocacy groups, schools of nursing, researchers, parents, and parenting groups.
