Full course description
erious or life-limiting illness in an infant, child, teen, or young adult can be devastating for the patient, family, and caregivers. In many cases, curative or life-extending treatment can last for years, along with the need for high-quality palliative care designed to offer support and ease suffering through every stage of illness.
This curriculum focuses on topics and domains of palliative care that are particularly challenging when working with pediatric populations with serious or terminal illness and their families, including communication, easing suffering, team support, and ethical issues. Courses build upon each other to reinforce learning and retention.
