This chapter stresses the importance of the collaboration between palliative care and pediatrics in the care of children with terminal or progressive illness. It explains that these two disciplines share fundamental values, assumptions, clinical processes, and goals that provide a rationale and basis for cross-fertilization and fruitful collaboration. These shared qualities can facilitate transitions of care between pediatric specialty services, such as neonatology, surgery, cardiology, and oncology and special palliative care.

Keywords:   palliative care, pediatrics, children, terminal illness, progressive illness, neonatology, cardiology, oncology
