Pediatric Palliative Care SIG - NAPNAP

Pediatric Palliative Care SIG

NAPNAP Pediatric Palliative Care SIG

Established in 2012, the purpose of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners’ (NAPNAP) Pediatric Palliative Care Special Interest Group (PPC SIG) is to focus on educating the NAPNAP membership regarding the definition and scope of pediatric palliative care, including ways in which it can be applied in various types of settings and practices.

Pediatric palliative care is the active total care of the child’s body, mind and spirit. It involves giving support to the family, begins when illness is diagnosed and continues regardless of whether or not a child receives disease directed treatment.

Our PPC SIG can offer support to members working within pediatric palliative care specifically, as well as different disease populations.
