The California Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) Collaborative serves as a forum for all stakeholders in PPC in CA to share ideas, experiences, and research, as well as brainstorm new ways to collaborate and move the field forward. We facilitate conversation and communication statewide through a listserv and quarterly calls led by CCCC. An in-person annual meeting of the Collaborative takes place at CCCC’s Annual Summit each year in the spring.
