Children’s Hospice Palliative Care Day

October 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

October 13th marks the first National Children’s Hospice Palliative Care Day in Canada. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of pediatric hospice palliative care and improve the quality of living and dying for infants, children and youth with life-threatening conditions and their families.

Many of us associate hospice palliative care with seniors and adults, but children with life-threatening illnesses need that comfort as well. Pediatric hospice palliative care is an active, holistic approach to care which focuses on relieving the physical, social, psychological and spiritual suffering experienced by children and families who face a progressive, life-threatening condition, and helping them fulfill their physical, psychological, social and spiritual goals.

Proudly marked by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association and the Canadian Network Of Palliative Care For Children
