Welcome to our research network
The ultimate goal of PedPalASCNET is to determine, through research, the interventions that are most effective in strengthening positive and mitigating negative outcomes of children with life-threatening conditions and the relative impact on their families. PedPalASCNET links researchers located across Canada, and engages in resource sharing, capacity building and knowledge translation.
