The needs of children and families living with life-limiting and life-threatening illness are similar across all European countries. Meeting these needs requires a comprehensive and integrative approach, with the input of a skilled multidisciplinary paediatric team. It is essential that the core standards for paediatric palliative care recommended in this document of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) now be implemented across Europe.
