When and Why Do Neonatal and Pediatric Critical Care Physicians Consult Palliative Care?
from American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Parents of children admitted to neonatal and pediatric intensive care units are at increased risk of experiencing acute and post-traumatic stress disorder. The integration of palliative care may improve child and family outcomes, yet there remains a lack of information about indicators for specialty-level palliative care involvement in this setting. The objective is to describe neonatal and pediatric critical care physician perspectives on indicators for when and why to involve palliative care consultants.
