Spanish Pediatric Palliative Care brochure - Cuidados paliativos para ninos: Apoyo para toda la familia cuando su hijo vive con una enfermedad grave
This Spanish-language translation of NINR’s pediatric palliative care brochure provides an overview of pediatric palliative care and answers questions that parents and families may have.
The at-a-glance fact sheet provides a brief overview of pediatric palliative care and answers some common questions that families may have such as:
- When can palliative care start?
- How does it work?
- And where is care provided?
This resource about finding support is a 4"x9", double-sided card with sections about different types of support that families may want to access – things like sibling support, respite care and school resources.
In "A Family’s Perspective," four families share their experiences with pediatric palliative care and how the care they receive impacts their children and their lives. The stories highlight the benefits of pediatric palliative care and provide families’ perspectives on this type of care.
