Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Session 6 : Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Medicine is a specialized area of medicine that focuses on providing comprehensive care for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. The aim of this type of care is to relieve the physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering that comes with serious illness, while also enhancing the quality of life for both the child and their family. This involves a team of healthcare professionals who work closely with the child's primary care physician to ensure that the child's medical and emotional needs are met. The care is tailored to the individual needs of the child and their family, with a focus on maintaining the child's comfort.
