Good paediatric palliative care includes care of the whole family, including brothers and sisters. Parents are often fearful or anxious about how to approach conversations about illness, death and dying with siblings of their sick child.
In this episode two parents share how they approached conversations with their children: they share with us what worked, what was challenging, and how they keep the memory of their child alive in the family.
This podcast is a collaborative project funded by the Quality of Care Collaborative Australia (QuoCCA) in partnership with The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), Melbourne and the Victorian Paediatric Palliative Care Program.
