Care Plan Book

The Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (PPCC) is pleased to present our Care Plan Book which is designed to make the caregiver’s job of managing and tracking information easier and more convenient. We understand how overwhelming and difficult that task can be. Our goal is that this reference guide (available as a binder or flash drive), to be used by families, caregivers and medical professionals, will become an invaluable resource.
