Families often choose to take part in a care planning meeting. This meeting can include your child, family members, doctor, home-care nurses and therapists, alternative healthcare providers, school staff, spiritual advisors or any others you want to invite. Together we go over health issues and treatment options. Depending on your family's unique needs and wishes, our discussion can include many other topics. We talk about quality of life and the ways treatment may affect your child's ability to do the things they love. We also talk about ways to get support in your community. A team member takes notes so that you will have a guide to the choices you make and the topics we cover. You can update the notes as often as you need to.
