Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care: Advances and Innovations (Pedi-Innovate)
August 9-11, 2018
This summer pediatrics course will be a forum for interdisciplinary healthcare professionals and others with an interest in pediatric palliative care to deepen their knowledge and understanding of this nascent and rapidly-evolving field.
Through this course, we aim to advance pediatrics in hospice and palliative care for children with serious illness, thereby optimizing their quality of life, regardless of treatment course or illness trajectory. Learners will improve their knowledge, competence, and change their performance, leading over time to enhanced patient outcomes.
- Translate advances in clinical and scientific knowledge to the practical, holistic care of children and families who can benefit from pediatric palliative care.
- Develop patient care plans that integrate state of the art psychological, spiritual, social and cultural approaches to care of children with life-threatening conditions and their families.
- Identify, through networking opportunities, contacts for collaboration in clinical care, research, advocacy, education and program development.
