This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about pediatric hospice care. The book provides specific information about providing for terminally ill children, including children's age-related understanding of death, the critical elements of pain and symptom control, and the psychosocial aspects of life-threatening illnesses in childhood and adolescence. It addresses the spiritual concerns of the family and sibling bereavement and describes inpatient palliative care practiced at St. Mary's Hospital for Children. The chapter also discusses the Children's Hospice International's (CHI) Program for All-Inclusive Care for Children and their Families (CHI PACC).
