Hospice Care for Children

Stacy F. Orloff

Oxford University Press

This chapter stresses the need to incorporate children in adult hospice care programs. It explains that more than 1 million children suffer from serious and chronic medical conditions in the U.S. and that it is imperative that adult hospice and palliative care programs adapt to including children when planning for today's and tomorrow's patients. The data suggests that many adult hospices are well suited to expand their reach to embrace children and their families.
