Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) is for children throughout Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital who have life-threatening, life-limiting, or progressive illnesses. The PPC team most frequently cares for patients with heart conditions and cancer diagnoses. PPC promotes families' goals of care, assists with anticipatory guidance, and focuses on pain and symptom management to ensure the best quality of life. A child's illness is often a journey through unknown territory where support, encouragement, and presence remain essential.
