Death in childhood is uncommon but for those families who have to confront the situation the burden is great. The stress and anxiety for health care workers is also considerable. This book considers the medical, psycho-social and practical issues involved in caring for children dying from chronic disease. It is directed towards pediatricians, family doctors and other professionals who may be involved in caring for terminally ill children and their families, whether at home or in hospital.
