This chapter looks at how people can help children and their families to deal with issues of loss and bereavement during illness, as death approaches, during death, and after death. In children's palliative care, children may be the ones that die and may be the ones that are bereaved. They may also be both, particularly where the family is affected by HIV. In children's palliative care, one has to take into account the needs of parents, for whom the loss of a child is particularly traumatic, as well as for different adult family members. The discussion focuses on children's bereavement, for those who are going to die (and have to deal with the impending loss of their own lives) and those who are left behind.
