Palliative Care at Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Pediatric palliative care focuses on enhancing quality of life for children and their families with serious, life threatening or life limiting conditions. We recognize that living with a life threatening condition can impact multiple aspects of a child and family’s life.
Palliative care can support a child and family through every stage of an illness by providing symptom management, emotional support, discussion about treatment plans and goals of care.
How We Help:
- Assess and treat symptoms related to your child’s condition
- Provide support for decision making and advance care planning
- Help coordinate care and keep communication open between families and the health care team
- Home support through our palliative care home team and hospice when needed
