It provides an overview of pediatric palliative care, and answers questions that parents and families may have, including how to know if a child or family needs palliative care, how it can work alongside other treatments a child may be receiving, how it can help a child live a more comfortable life, and how families can get palliative care. Links for more information are provided.
