About Children’s Hospice International
The Children’s Hospice International (CHI) is a non-profit organization founded in 1983 to promote hospice support through pediatric care facilities; to encourage the inclusion of children in existing and developing hospice, palliative, and home care programs; and to include the hospice perspectives in all areas of pediatric care, education and the public arena. Consisting of 400 members, CHI supports several program activities including a national telephone hotline assisting children with life-threatening conditions and their families and healthcare providers; a web site with a national and international searchable database (in 2003); 14 world congresses; and a federally funded CHI Program for All-inclusive Care for Children and their families, a demonstration program being implemented in over six states with technical assistance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
