Palliative care is as applicable in the emergency department (ED) and in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting as it is in the home. This chapter discusses transitioning goals of care between pediatric care settings, which is a critically important issue for children who die, since the vast majority of childhood deaths occur in an ICU setting.
