Description

There is a dearth of information on the role of the pediatric palliative advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) reported in the literature, and yet, the role is expanding. Advances in technology and health care are helping children with medical complexity live longer, and the demand for pediatric palliative care is growing. As programs expand to meet this need, there are new opportunities for pediatric palliative APRNs to practice outside acute care consultative models, within large children's hospitals. The aim of this article was to describe the expanding role of the pediatric palliative APRN using a progressive case study that describes how these expanding roles can collaborate using evidence-based practice and expert consensus to define their roles. If pediatric palliative APRNs hesitate to define their practice, others will define it for them.
