This chapter examines the scope of palliative nursing care and the responsibilities of the pediatric palliative care (PPC) nurse to children and their families. It explains that PPC nurses facilitate coordination and management of overall palliative care, that they provide end-of-life care for children and therefore require special expertise and personal character to serve their patients with compassion and wisdom. The chapter provides a summary of the pediatric bedside and advance practice palliative care nursing functions.
