Chochinov, 2007 (cited in Cornwell & Goodrich, 2009), states simply that compassion is ‘a deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.’ Pediatric patients and their families are highly sensitive to the compassionate nature of health care professionals and a successful therapeutic relationship with them depends on the sensitive, compassionate care offered by the nurse. This paper will discuss why communication, family centred care and compassion are necessary and important qualities for a nurse to possess when working with pediatric patients and specify some of the challenges a nurse may meet in providing these.

Patten learned at school that ‘one and one made two’. This metaphor is referring to love and how one person and another come together to make two. But at home it was a completely different story; Patten had parents who fought and didn’t take much interest in him, Patten’s home life ‘stung more than any teachers cane’ which shows the extent of how painful love came across to him. In his home life he learned that ‘one and one stayed one and one’. His parents actions when he was young left him with the idea that love and relationships are horrible and all it does is hurt us, he felt as if it’s not worth going through the pain and stress.
This project proved to me that having a child as a young adult is wouldn’t work for me. Having a child opened my eyes up to show me that I am actually taking care of another human being. How can I take care of another person when I can barely keep up with myself? I feel like you have to know your baby more than you know yourself.

My dad was the total opposite of what she

It might be more crucial for the child to receive hospice care at home, so the child may avoid from suffering from separation anxiety.

Speaking to a loved one about end of life decisions is never easy, and in most cases is not discussed until someone has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. When a loved one is faced with a poor prognosis, the family is confronted with important decisions on how to provide end of life care for them. The nurse can be instrumental in helping the patient and family decide whether they want to stay in the hospital, or go home for their final days. Helping the family set up an advanced directives is important so the family is aware of the patient’s wishes in the event that they can no longer make their own decisions. It also reduces any anxiety that the family members may be feeling if the patient has their wishes laid out for them to follow.
My brother was into drugs which he began doing at age sixteen, which means he was doing them for half of his short lived life. We still needed to find a way to my house, and my sister was trying to get out of work, so she had her friend Kristen pick us up and drive us there. Kristen came to the door crying and that’s when it hit me. This was not a joke, my brother died, he was gone. The fact that I was never going to see Bugga again broke my heart into a million little pieces that I couldn’t pick up and put back
