Pediatric palliative care : Composition of the team

CHU Sainte-Justine’s palliative care central committee brings together members of all hospital programs and management whose mandate is to ensure that all children suffering from potentially life-threatening illnesses receive the care needed for their optimum comfort, that is, physical, psychological, social and spiritual comfort offering them the opportunity to live their life, however short it may be, without pain and suffering and with dignity.
