Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) cares for children who have life threatening, life limiting, or progressive illnesses throughout Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. The most frequent patient and family involvement within the PPC team comes from patients with heart conditions and cancer diagnoses. PPC continues to promote families' goals of care, assist with anticipatory guidance, and focus on pain and symptom management to assure the best quality of life. A child's illness is often a journey through unknown territory where support, encouragement, and presence remain essential.
