Paediatric palliative care in Denmark should be strengthened
Paediatric palliative care is the total care for the child’s body, mind and spirit, and involves support to the family. It begins when a life-threatening disease is diagnosed and depends on an interdisciplinary team approach. In 2013, 295 children under the age of 16 years died in Denmark. Of these, 195 were less than one year old. Most children and their families may prefer death at home if possible. Early planning allows for better integration of home-care services and ensures that death occurs at the place that is best for the child and family.
