Description

NO ABSTRACT PARAGRAPH 1: In hospitals around the nation, children with medical complexity (CMC) receive life-prolonging interventions for debilitating diseases. These children are alive because of disease-focused interventions including multiple medications, innovative procedures, durable medical equipment, and continuous care. Their lives depend on an intricate dance of family caregivers—along with health care providers—who must manage long-term illnesses in their homes and communities in the context of a health care system that is only beginning to address the challenges of complex chronic disease care for children.
