The Division of Pediatric Palliative Care gives learners with an experience in providing interdisciplinary, comprehensive care for children and families with life-limiting illnesses in childhood. Pediatric palliative care focuses on the prevention and relief of suffering through early identification, attentive assessment and compassionate treatment of pain and other symptoms. Palliative care faculty care for children and families at Children's Nebraska and Nebraska Medicine.

Learners have the opportunity to participate with the palliative care faculty partners in working with patients, families and the primary medical team to develop a collaborative plan of care to help meet the goals and needs of each child and family.
