When The Sasha Bella Fund asked the Palliative Care Service about their priorities going on three years ago, a key request was to help fund research by the new research interest group TRAC-PG. Supporting a new national network of committed paediatric palliative reseachers was naturally very appealing and lead to a modest palliative research Innovation Fund. In November 2008, two of four study applicants were supported - this year four of twelve applicants were supported My second year on the selection committee again left me amazed at the knowledge of research and clinical practise and the attention to detail and constructiveness of feedback. Here is a  list of TRAC-PG completed and in progress studies showing it's wide ark over 5 years.
