Abstract

Sick children suffer greatly from pain and other symptoms, but we do not know enough about the needs of sick children and their families caring for them at home in southern Africa. LAURA CAMPBELL, JOAN MARSTON, LINDA RICHTER and ALAN STEIN are conducting a study on children's home-based palliative care in order to develop a programme for home care.
