Caring Conversations Toolkit

This information will help caregivers and families ask certain questions to learn if it is time to start a conversation about hospice or palliative care.   The information has been modified so that families can ask similar questions of medical professionals that may lead them to a conversation about if and when it is time to talk about hospice or palliative care for their child.
