Children's Palliative Care requires a holistic, person centred approach which takes into account the needs not only of the child but also the whole family. This presentation gives a short introduction to Paediatric Palliative Care, introducing key concepts such as Advanced Care Plans (ACPs) and the Spectrum of Children's Palliative Care Needs described by Shaw, Brook and Randall (2012). The main categories of conditions with which children with palliative care needs may present, are defined by the RCPCH and Together for Short Lives. This talk was given to year 1 - 3 Specialist Trainees in Paediatrics but it may be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students in Nursing and Allied Health Professions.
