Fellows' updates July 2023 Fellow update: Steve Marshall

Steve Marshall appeared in ehospice, a global news and information resource which provides news and commentary from the world of hospices and palliative care. Steve's Fellowship is focused on developing recommendations to support children with a dying parent. In the article Steve talks about his Fellowship travels to Norway and Sweden to find out how their healthcare systems support children with seriously ill parents. Steve writes about how these countries have adopted a concept of children as ‘next-of-kin’ and how it is implemented, and the difference that this can make.
