Abstract

Interdisciplinary care is a core element of cancer treatment and provides a firm foundation on which to incorporate additional palliative care elements into pediatric oncology. In this chapter, we focus on the development and structure of interdisciplinary oncology teams and discuss ways to enhance existing roles to allow for greater incorporation of palliative care concepts. We will also consider the role of specialty palliative care teams and discuss paradigms for incorporating consultation into the care of children with cancer.
