Edited by: Verna L. Hendricks-Ferguson, PhD, RN

Designed to be a guide for nurses and other clinicians with limited or no pediatric clinical experience to plan and provide nursing care to children during palliative care (diagnosis through end of life). Additionally, this book is organized to disseminate pediatric nursing knowledge by expert pediatric clinicians from a variety of clinical settings about the palliative care support needs of children.

It describes tenets related to recommended communication practices; addresses concepts related to spiritual care; discusses theories related to children’s understanding of death, the palliative care needs of infants receiving care in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

You will find discussion of the palliative care needs for children diagnosed with brain tumors with a poor prognosis; with cystic fibrosis (CF); children diagnosed with hemophilia; with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); children diagnosed with leukemia and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), as well as children that were victims of traumatic brain injury.
