Misson & Vision
The AAP Section on Hospice and Palliative Medicine strives to ensure that all children with hospice and palliative care needs and their families have access to and receive the highest possible quality of care regardless of where they live.
Children with life-threatening and/or life-limiting conditions and their families meet their challenges with a minimum of pain and the highest possible degree of support from the healthcare community.
Pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists are able to recognize children who will benefit from palliative care, and have the knowledge and skill to provide palliative care or to secure referral to colleagues who will provide outstanding palliative care.
