Description

This study aims to examine perceived challenges, including knowledge, skills, self, and work environment, of professionals in providing pediatric palliative care (PPC) in Hong Kong and the differences in perceived challenges between groups. A total of 680 pediatric doctors and nurses participated in the survey. They tended to perceive the provision of PPC as difficult and considered "advanced skills" (those dealing with death-related issues) challenging. Findings indicate that nurses, professionals who are less experienced, do not have children, and have not received palliative care training perceived a higher level of challenges in providing PPC. Implications for training and support are discussed.
