Our Goal

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.
