Who we can help
A palliative care consult is reasonable when any child is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. Any child receiving a medically complex diagnosis could benefit from the palliative care experts being involved in their care team.
Palliative care can be involved with children of any age with a life limiting condition. This may include, but is certainly not limited to, genetic conditions, brain injuries, progressive cancer, metabolic disorders, immunodeficiencies, premature infants, or neurological disorders.
Palliative care has been shown to have a positive impact on the overall well-being of seriously ill children and their families.
