Event Details

The 2018 Pediatric Webinar Series is presented in collaboration with the Pennsylvania’s Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (PPCC) and Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (GIPPCC).

Many communities across the country are facing a shortage of pediatric nurses and social workers needed to adequately address the needs of children in their communities who could benefit from hospice and palliative care services.  In response to this growing gap, hospice and home health agencies are working to train and prepare their adult staff to care for children. 

This webinar will provide practical and evidence-based information and resources on how agencies and their staff can increase their competencies and confidence in providing pediatric palliative care and in turn help to ensure that children and families in their area have the support and care they need to live life as fully as possible and remain connected and safe at home in their communities.

$30 Individual Registration / $150 Organization Registration

1 CEU included for nurses and social workers.

 Webinar participants will:

1. Discuss your strengths and learning needs to be able to provide or improve your provision of pediatric palliative care

2. List three support and educational resources to further your knowledge about providing care for children and their families

3. Discuss ways to identify and engage potential community partners in the collaboration plan

4. Identify three common symptoms that children with palliative care may experience and two treatment options

5. Discuss common psychosocial issues that families with a child needing palliative care/hospice may experience
