Advance Care Planning in End of Life Care

Angela Thompson

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the spectrum of conditions involved requiring ACP in paediatrics, the challenges of ACP in paediatrics, and drivers, evidence base, tools, and pathways to support paediatric ACP. It also discuses maintaining support for the family at the time of and following death, and reflects upon messages from special journeys. The discussion suggests that families need care that is planned in partnership with them, is anticipatory, is regularly reviewed, takes account of the whole family's needs, including siblings, and especially the child/young person, enables choice, encompasses parallel planning, provides access to 24/7 expertise in symptom control, and engages in anticipatory bereavement care.

Keywords:   parents, paediatrics, bereavement care, anticipatory bereavement, symptom control
