Good support and palliative care are essential for children who are born with or develop a life-threatening disease. Focusing on the needs of children with life-threatening illness as a group and the development of paediatric palliative care as a specialty is relatively new compared with adult palliative care, but it has been developing rapidly over the last ten years. This chapter highlights some of the particular problems of care for children, the differences from adult care, and the evolving models of services.

Keywords:   patient care, sick children, life-threatening illness, paediatric palliative care
