Aim: The consideration of those close to the patient is an integral part of supportive care. One must ensure that the importance of the presence of children is also reflected in medical care. Procedure: The survey addresses nurses who are in charge of the hospital patients in the palliative phase. The questionnaires were sent throughout the country via the Internet to 96 directors whose hospitals provide the service of oncology. One hundred and fifteen people responded to the survey. Results: Our results show that 83% of the nurses think that the child can be shocked by the medical care. Sixty-nine percent are not ready to communicate with the children and 68% express a lack of training in their program in child support. However, the situation of children with the patient is regularly discussed during the multidisciplinary meetings. Conclusion: A lack of understanding of the emotional and psychological development of children restricts a nurse's ability to accommodate and accompany this fragile population. Children, the adults of tomorrow, through better accompaniment, can have a less apprehensive perception of the hospital environment and greater. The creation of a specific welcome area for children and the training of the nursing staff could contribute to the presence of children in hospital care.
