Communications with children and families is the theme of the new edition of the pediatric e-journal produced by NHPCO's Children's Project on Hospice/Palliative Services. This resource is available free of charge online.
These articles included in this edition of the e-journal offer suggestions for and examples of engaging in this important aspect of providing pediatric palliative/hospice care.
In the introduction, the e-journal editors write, "We appreciate that a single issue on this subject will not do complete justice to this very broad subject area, but we hope that the articles in this issue will spur increased awareness and discussion of this subject and we note that all communication is a cooperative enterprise with children, adolescents, their family members, the professionals, the volunteers, and the organizations involved in their care. We welcome communications from anyone who has more to offer on these subjects."
