CHPCA and the Canadian Network for Palliative Care for Children (CNPCC) are proud to mark October 8th as National Children’s Hospice Palliative Care Day in Canada.
Many of us associate hospice palliative care with seniors and adults, but children with life-threatening illnesses need that comfort as well. Pediatric hospice palliative care is an active, holistic approach to care which focuses on relieving the physical, social, psychological and spiritual suffering experienced by children and families who face a progressive, life-threatening condition, and helping them fulfill their physical, psychological, social and spiritual goals.
