Some specific aspects of communication in pediatric oncology will be outlined in this chapter. These include openness about the disease, which has become increasingly important. Furthermore, the law of double protection, a self-protective strategy used by children, parents, and hospital staff, will be sketched out. It is very striking that protection is often achieved through protection of the other. Several examples of this strategy will be presented. Finally, attention will be paid to communication about death in the palliative phase.
