Life-limiting conditions are those for which there is no reasonable hope of cure and from which children or young people will die. Some of these conditions cause progressive deterioration rendering the child increasingly dependent on parents and carers. Life-threatening conditions are those for which curative treatment may be feasible but can fail, such as children with cancer. Over 25,000 children or young people in the UK are unlikely to reach adulthood due to a complex health condition. Half of these children will have substantial palliative care needs and over 5,000 will die every year. Children's palliative care isÂ an active and total approach to care, embracing physical, emotional, social and spiritual elements. It focuses on enhancement of quality of life for the child and support for the whole family and includes the management of distressing symptoms, provision of respite and care from diagnosis through death and bereavement.
