Hospice Care for Children

Ron S. Levin

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the role of primary care physicians (PCP) in pediatric hospice care. It suggests that PCP must be able to help in family coping and that they must be cognizant of the data that describe the financial situations of the children they treat. The chapter argues that the role of the PCP is essential in ensuring that a patient with life-threatening or end-of-life issues has a “medical home,” as described by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

Keywords:   PCP, hospice care, family coping, financial situation, end of life, medical home, AAP
