This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0188, "Flexible Sigmoidoscopy". The doctor uses a flexible tube (scope) with a light at the tip to view the inside of the lower part of the bowel and rectum. This pamphlet describes getting ready for the test, the actual test, and care after the test. Possible complications and symptoms that require immediate medical attention after the test are noted. A responsible adult must take you home and care for you. If sedation is given, it is not safe to do certain activities for 24 hours.

Abstract
Ce dépliant explique comment aider votre enfant à faire face à la fin de vie, à la mort et au deuil. Il explique comment les enfants peuvent réagir lorsqu'une personne est très malade, comment planifier adéquatement les visites de la famille à l'hôpital ou au centre de soins palliatifs et l'importance de prendre le temps de parler à votre enfant. Il fournit aussi des conseils quant à la présence ou non des enfants au moment du décès et des recommandations pour annoncer à un enfant qu'une personne est décédée. On y traite également des sujets suivants : la préparation aux rituels et aux funérailles, l'importance pour les enfants de parler ouvertement de leur peine, la nécessité de garder des souvenirs de l'être aimé, la façon dont les réactions des enfants peuvent différer de celles des adultes et la nécessité de demander du soutien lorsque l'enfant est anxieux. On fournit des conseils pour les différents stades de développement (p. ex., les enfants de 3 à 5 ans, de 6 à 8 ans et de 9 à 12 ans) et une liste de ressources en ligne.
