What is palliative medicine?

Our pediatric palliative medicine team provides specialized and holistic medical care for children living with chronic, life-threatening or life-limiting medical conditions. Our goal is to optimize the quality of life for your child and family by assisting in several aspects of your child’s care: 

  • Helping to define value-based goals of medical care
  • Assisting in shared medical decision-making
  • Assessment of complex symptom management
  • Advance care planning
  • Facilitating effective multidisciplinary communication of all teams involved in the care of your child

We work alongside all medical subspecialties in the hospital to ensure the most comprehensive, collaborative care possible.
