This chapter discusses how the staff reacts to participating in pediatric end-of-life care. This raises several issues across a continuum of professional and personal concerns. Four themes arise from the narrative segments that are presented in the chapter. It also shows how the staff relates with one another, how they express the need for education and training in end-of-life care, how they communicate with patients and families, and how they cope and move on.
