The aim of the study was to evaluate the current status of pediatric palliative home care in Poland. The survey based on the questionnaire, which analyzed annual number of patients and deaths, diagnoses, age, and place of living. The annual number of treated children per million of inhabitants was calculated. The data about 1240 patients (1176 children and 64 young adults with pediatric conditions) was obtained from 45 hospices. The number of treated children per million inhabitants is diverse in different provinces, the highest in the Małopolski province and the lowest in the Lubuski province. There are still regions where pediatric palliative home care is not accessible. Therefore, the authors suggest establishment of two new hospices in Mława and Człuchów.
