2020 Webinars

About the Pediatric Palliative Care Webinar Series:

There continues to be significant data highlighting the workforce shortage in pediatric palliative care, and, as the as the number of children with chronic, complex and life-limiting illness continues to increase, the training needs of physicians and healthcare teams is burgeoning in pediatrics. Many adult providers, family practitioners and smaller hospice teams have identified training as the leading barrier to their ability to provide end-of-life care to children. Larger systems with new or established pediatric palliative care (PPC) teams often struggle to find time for education or funding to support professional development.

A team from Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition (CHPCC), Pennsylvania’s Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (PPCC), Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (GIPPCC) Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services, Stanford Medical School and the CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care have collaborated to offer the PPC Webinar Series to raise the visibility of pediatric palliative care and to build clinicians’ competencies and confidence in providing care to children. Given the success of the webinars and positive feedback, plans for an engaging 2020 series are underway.
