Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric palliative care is a unique area of practice. Unlike adult palliative care, pediatric palliative care focuses on both quality of life and the developmental stage of the child.

For more information and tips on communicating about pediatric palliative care, visit the National Institute of Health website Palliative Care: Conversations Matter and download the customizable tear-off pad, available in both English (PDF) and Spanish (PDF).

The Center to Advance Palliative Care offers a Field Guide (PDF) with pediatric palliative care resources, tools and training.
