Pediatric Palliative Care

What is Pediatric Palliative Care?

Pediatric palliative care is family-centered and focuses on providing relief for the symptoms and stress of an illness for both the child and the family. The palliative goal at Cure 4 The Kids is to improve the quality of life for the families we serve. It is important to know that palliative care is based on need and not necessarily on prognosis which is why we recommend talking with your team early about what the family’s needs might be. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any state of an illness and can be provided along with treatment plans meant to cure. Its design is to help families with communication and the coordination of care. At Cure 4 The Kids, we believe it is important to have close communication with the families so they are better able to choose options that are in line with their values, traditions, and culture because we know it will improve the well-being of the entire family.

Our team focuses on providing relief for things such as nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, pain, anxiety or depression, difficulty sleeping and much more, to help improve the quality of life for each family.

Working Together

A specially-trained team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and others provide palliative care. The team works together with the child’s other doctors as an extra layer of support. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage of an illness, and it can be provided along with treatment meant to cure. Palliative care is based on need, not prognosis.
