Pediatric Palliative Care

Pediatric palliative care helps relieve symptoms or other issues that your child has because of serious illness or treatment. Much more comprehensive than terminal care, it is helpful at any time from diagnosis throughout treatment.

The Pediatric Palliative Care Consulting Service has a special team devoted to easing your child’s experience however we can. The pediatric palliative care consulting team is made up of a doctor, nurse, social worker, and chaplain at Seattle Children’s, a Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) partner organization. This team consults with your family and your child’s direct health care providers.
