Conversations in Perinatal, Neonatal, and Pediatric Palliative Care focuses on children with serious illness. Nurses constantly encounter complex patient care situations in pediatric palliative care from the neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, and oncology settings, as well as home and clinics. In order to provide the best care and meet the unique needs of neonates, children, and adolescents with serious illness in a variety of locations, nurses need to have experts provide answers. What nurses often say they need most is the advice or support of a colleague—a “curbside” consultation with an experienced nursing colleague who can listen to their questions and help them think about the options.

This book is the next best thing to a curbside consultant. It is a collection of common clinical problems that are of great concern to nurses as they struggle to provide the most competent and compassionate care possible to their patients. The advice provided in this book is not only evidence based, it is nurse tested, written by pediatric palliative experts who have years of experience at the curbside, providing palliative care, and mentoring interdisciplinary colleagues.

The first chapters set the stage by providing an introduction to pediatric palliative care, the interdisciplinary approach, models of care promoting continuity across all care settings, and the importance of a relationship-based approach to honor the family’s hopes, fears, and preferences for care. Topics include: physical (non-pharmacological and pharmacological pain and symptom management; psychosocial (communicating with siblings); spiritual (respectful disposition); cultural (assessing family’s core values and ethics) and program development.
