Pediatric Updates 2020: What We Need to Know in Palliative
Palliative care for children aims to improve quality of life for the patient and the family. This is done through expert management of pain and other physical symptoms such as shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and anxiety. It is also done through emotional, spiritual and other support services to help the patient and family cope with the roller coaster of emotions that result from dealing with a serious illness or condition (AAP, ND). This activity is designed to increase the learner’s knowledge on current developments in pediatric palliative care diagnosis, treatment, symptom management, and survivorship in pediatric serious illness care. Current approaches in caring for children and families with serious illness, our roles as advocates for quality pediatric serious care, strategies to assist in care for adolescents with serious illnesses as they transition into adulthood and resource support in caring for children and families experiencing serious illness will be addressed.
