Hospice Care for Children

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines pain and symptom management for infants and children with a variety of life-limiting conditions. It explains that caring for infants and children with terminal illness is a complex challenge that requires a coordinated interdisciplinary effort across the continuum of care and that it is necessary for health professionals to work closely with the child and the family to meet this challenge. The chapter recommends a multimodal approach to treatment that includes integrating pharmacological and psychosocial care with intentional consideration of the child's physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual levels of development.

Keywords:   pain management, symptom management, infants, children, terminal illness, multimodal treatment, psychosocial care, hospice care
