These documents represent both the hard work of many CLT professionals who volunteered their time on working parties, and the vision of those on the ACLTA Executive (over many years) – we acknowledge them with great thanks!




In June 2014, thanks to the generous support of Australian children’s cancer charity Camp Quality, ACLTA held a Strategic Forum on Hospital Play in Australia. Representatives from all states and territories (except NT), and from a range of child life therapy services (Children’s Hospitals, sole practitioners, private practice) came together to set the course for the Association, and profession, in the coming years.

One of the many outcomes from this Forum was the agreement for the need to create frameworks that would support the recruitment (and retention) of staff that are well equipped to work in this very rewarding – and challenging – role. These Frameworks would also serve to unite the diverse range of services that exist across the country.

We encourage Hospital Executives, Allied Health and Nurse Unit Managers, team leaders, professionals, and others involved in the provision of services in paediatrics to use these Frameworks – in recruitment, during reviews, and when encouraging professional development.

It’s the little things that make such a big difference.You may have seen Ron's story over the past few days and his beautiful encounter with the Queensland Ambulance Service.

Ron was on his final journey to hospital and palliative care when the officers asked Ron, 'If you could eat anything, what would it be?' To which Ron replied, 'A caramel sundae'.

We've now received an update from Ron's daughter, Danielle, that he has passed away. Here's what she had to say 👇

"Dad enjoyed this so much and was the last thing he was able to eat by himself. Mum and I cannot thank QAS enough for all the help and compassion you have all given towards us each time we have had to call you, I remember a couple of months ago, the big tall Paramedic guy especially, we couldn't get dad out of bed, and couldn't get the gurney near their bed so you picked him up and carried him out the front onto bed. Each and every Paramedic we have encountered over the last few months, THANK YOU FROM MUM AND I"
