Palliative Care for Infants, Children, and Adolescents: A Practical Handbook
Palliative Care for Infants, Children, and Adolescents: A Practical Handbook is a comprehensively well written book encompassing the pediatric population, with a practical, didactic, and academic approach to palliative care. This book's treatment of end-of-life issues would benefit all pediatric caregivers affiliated with life-limiting or life- threatening conditions, regardless of setting. One of the more poignant aspects of this book is its attempt to promote and advance palliative care for children in the face of prevailing barriers. We are reminded that, although we strive to cure and promote life, we must not fail to give to the pediatric patient state-of-the-art care in the face of life-limiting and certain-death circumstances.
