Hospice Care for Children

Lizabeth H. Sumner

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the importance of staff support in pediatric hospice care. It suggests that individuals who work in pediatric hospices and palliative care require a commitment from themselves and their organizations to foster a continual sense of renewal, dedication, and respect in their capacity to care for these babies, children, and adolescents whose precious lives are far too short. The chapter discusses a comprehensive approach to maintaining the professional well being of hospice staff and explores ways to help them cope with professional anxiety.
