Description

An increasing number of children and young people require end of life care, and providing them and their families with optimum support at this time is crucial. This article describes how nurses working with children and families in home, hospital and community settings used the principles of practice development methodology to develop end of life care provision and follow-up bereavement support. It outlines the 'ways of knowing' that informed developments and how parents' priorities were kept central to the process. Finally, it discusses how the approach taken to practice development reflected the value of compassion in nursing practice.
