Zusammenfassung

Die Bedürfnisse von Kindern mit lebenslimitierenden und lebensbedrohlichen Erkrankungen und ihrer Familien sind in ganz Europa gleich. Diesen Bedürfnissen kann nur im Rahmen eines umfassenden und integrativen Versorgungsmodells unter Beteiligung geschulter, multidisziplinärer pädiatrischer Palliativteams positiv begegnet werden. Die Autoren empfinden es als essenziell, dass zumindest die in diesem Dokument von der European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) empfohlenen elementaren Standards der pädiatrischen Palliativversorgung in ganz Europa implementiert werden.

IMPaCCT: standards of paediatric palliative care

Abstract

The needs of children and families living with life-limiting and life-threatening illness are similar across all European countries. Meeting these needs requires a comprehensive and integrative approach, with the input of a skilled multidisciplinary paediatric team. It is essential that the core standards for paediatric palliative care recommended in this document of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) now be implemented across Europe.
