Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering are two things that can be experienced by patients in end-of-life care. For pediatric end-of-life care patients, perception of pain is defined by their cognitive level and age, their ability to control the pain themselves, and their past experiences with pain, among others. The narratives presented in this chapter attempt to capture the various issues surrounding pain management at the end of a child's life.
