We support children and families who are living with progressive, life-threatening diseases, and the health-care professionals who are caring for them.
We provide advanced symptom management and palliative care services with Canuck Place through consultation, collaboration and care delivery.
Pediatric palliative care is an active and total approach to care, from the point of diagnosis or recognition, throughout the child's life, death and beyond.
It embraces physical, emotional, social and spiritual elements and focuses on the enhancement of quality of life for the child/young person and support for the family. This care includes the management of distressing symptoms, provision of short respite breaks, end of life care and bereavement support.
