To the Editor We read with great interest the systematic review and meta-analysis conducted by Barker et al1 reporting a higher prevalence of anxiety and depression in children, adolescents, and young adults with life-limiting conditions than in the general population. The findings from this systematic review and meta-analysis1 highlight the need to improve the public service system by facilitating children, adolescents, and young adults with life-limiting conditions to access psychological care. We would like to comment on 2 methodologic aspects of this study.
