Description

High-quality palliative care is the standard for children with life-threatening illness, especially when a cure is not possible. This review outlines a model for clinical practice that integrates clinical, psychosocial, and ethical concerns at the end of life (EOL) into a standard operating procedure specifically focused on inpatient deaths. Palliative care for children at EOL in the hospital setting should encompass the personal, cultural, and spiritual needs of the child and family members and aim to minimize suffering and increase support for all who are involved, including hospital staff.
