Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Pediatric psychosomatic medicine is increasingly in the role of collaboration with pediatric palliative care teams. Child psychiatrists bring unique and complementary expertise about a child’s cognitive, emotional and physical development in the context of serious medical illness, especially when there is psychiatric and medical co-morbidity. Through case examples, this chapter offers guidance about improving targeted treatment, quality of life, and outcomes for dying youth and their families.
