Abstract

Do-not-attempt resuscitation orders are becoming more common in pediatrics, particularly as programs for hospice and palliative care in children develop. Concomitantly, there arises the need to decide when it is appropriate to use these technologies. It is at this point that the skills of relationship building, listening, and empathic concern become indispensable.
