Conversations in Perinatal, Neonatal, and Pediatric Palliative Care invites readers to enter the world of children with serious illness. The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association chose a unique format, as each author writes in a conversational style that brings the reader into the subject. Chapter topics are concepts frequently mentioned in other writings, but often not given time and attention needed to be fully developed. Whether the topic is psychosocial (communicating with siblings), physiological (medicating pain), spiritual (respectful disposition), or cultural (assessing family’s core values), you will find yourself setting aside other thoughts and disruptions to focus fully on what meets you on the pages of this book.

The first chapters set the stage by providing an introduction to pediatric palliative care, the interdisciplinary approach, models of care promoting continuity across all care settings, and the importance of a relationship-based approach to honor the family’s hopes, fears, and preferences for care. Authors share their expertise in the art of pain and symptom management, including the use of integrative and music therapies, to ease discomfort and suffering. A nurse ethicist provides a thorough, clinically relevant review of ethical issues that arise in perinatal and neonatal palliative care provision.

Explore the unique needs of neonates, children, and adolescents with serious illness in a variety of locations, including the neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, and oncology settings. Gain insight into the moments surrounding a child’s death, with in-depth discussions about end-of-life care, bereavement photography, organ donation, talking with children about death, and family bereavement care.

Latter chapters provide helpful insight on establishing and sustaining a pediatric palliative care program; state and federal initiatives supporting pediatric palliative care provision; and issues that will test, strengthen, and grow our specialty in the future.
