Abstract

The purpose of our study, “Home Care for the Child with Cancer”, was to examine the feasibility and desirability of a home care alternative to hospitalization for children dying of cancer. Home care was defined as “the delivery of services, nurse-directed with physicians and other health care professionals as consultants, to enable parents to give comfort and care as required by a child at the end stage of life.”
