Seattle Children’s Develops End of Life and Bereavement Standard Work

Providing compassionate end of life care for children is an essential part of Seattle Children’s mission. It is also a highly emotional time for families, providers and staff. To support staff and providers in this important work, Children’s has developed an End of Life and Bereavement Pathway.  Resources available as part of this work include:

  • A clinical standard work algorithm
  • An End of Life and Bereavement care plan
  • Numerous Job Aids

We recognize and honor that every patient and family will have different needs, wishes, and goals, and as such, these resources are intended to be adapted to each individual situation.
