Description

Social media is an important access point for engagement of children and adolescents. For individuals with a life-limiting illness or serving as the caregiver for an ill child, social media can be a helpful outlet for support and information gathering. It has democratized the process of being remembered through providing an ongoing account of thoughts, pictures, and videos that theoretically live on forever via a digital legacy. Providers should be familiar with how this new generation uses social media during their illness, after death, and in the bereavement process.Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Inc.
