Alberta Health Services

Edmonton Zone - Palliative Care, Pediatric


Description
Ensures quality of life care for ill children and their family members.

Helps care for any child who has a life-threatening illness. Care is provided for children of all ages, including those not yet born but diagnosed with a life-threatening condition.
