Join the APPM

The APPM represents doctors working in paediatric palliative care across all care settings in the UK and Republic of Ireland

The APPM therefore represents both paediatricians with an interest in paediatric palliative medicine and other doctors particularly GPs with a specialist interest, many of whom are working in children’s hospices.

Membership is open to medical practitioners who are graduates of the royal colleges and who work particularly with children and young people with life threatening and life limiting conditions and their families. 

Associate membership is open to non medical professionals and others with a specific interest in paediatric palliative care, on the advice of the executive committee.

Membership benefits include:

  • Annual scientific meeting - Including guest lectures and selected scientific abstract presentations
  • Annual educational meeting - Providing evidence based lectures and interactive workshops on a range of topics relevant to paediatric palliative medicine
  • Twice yearly newsletter produced in the Spring and Autumn

APPM membership is £50 per year.

APPM membership is administered by Together for Short Lives.
