Children receiving palliative care face unique physical and psychosocial challenges. Parents sometimes turn to complementary medication (CM) for help. However, relevant studies on CM are limited. We will share a study examining patterns of usage of CM on paediatric patients with cancer and non-cancer conditions who are receiving palliative care in Hong Kong. We recommend that future studies could explore the integration of CM approaches into palliative programmes for symptom management and psychological support in different local settings.
