Providing this type of care throughout the illness process, from the time of diagnosis until the time of death, can be simultaneously challenging, physically and emotionally draining, enriching, and meaningful. This chapter provides an overview of pediatric hospice and palliative care and the special considerations necessary for nurses who may be called on to provide this unique type of care to children and their families.
