Abstract
volution des pratiques médicales inclut dorénavant le développement des soins palliatifs pédiatriques. En effet, la spécificité de la prise en charge des enfants et des adolescents vivant avec une pathologie pouvant menacer leur vie a été démontrée grâce à l'expertise et au travail de réflexion entrepris et soutenu par des intervenants spécialisés, autant en Amérique du Nord qu'en Europe.
La recherche dans ce domaine soulève certaines problématiques particulières, à la fois sur les plans médical, psychologique, éthique, émotionnel, relationnel et spirituel. En regroupant et en explorant plusieurs d'entre elles - contexte de périnatalité ou de handicap, gestion de la douleur, poursuite de la scolarité, rôle du pédiatre et de l'infirmière, souffrance des membres de la famille et des soignants, décès à l'urgence, impacts des décisions concernant l'alimentation, les niveaux de soins et la non-réanimation, possible conflit opposant famille et équipe de soins, importance du suivi de deuil...-, ce livre contribue à donner à chaque jeune patient un encadrement global et adéquat visant la meilleure qualité de vie possible dans le respect de son développement. Référence essentielle, il témoigne de la complexité des gestes et des décisions des soignants qui, ne pouvant plus guérir la maladie, sont appelés à soulager tous les malaises du petit malade et de sa famille, y comprix ceux de l'âme.
