Access to high-quality pediatric hospice and palliative care is becoming increasingly important as the prevalence of children with serious illness grows and the complexity of their health at end of life rises. Pediatric hospice and palliative care is end-of-life care focused on enhancing the quality of end of life for the child and the family, preventing and/or minimizing suffering, optimizing function, and offering opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. Access to care is a multidimensional process proceeding from health policy through the characteristics of the healthcare delivery system to the utilization of healthcare services and quality of care accessed.
