Webinar: Addressing the Spiritual Needs of Children with Elisha Waldman, MD
January 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
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).
In times of illness and in health, the role of spirituality can be a crucial coping mechanism, even in young children. For a child facing a life-threatening illness, the experience can raise profound spiritual questions of meaning and connection. Spirituality may influence how they experience their illness and play a crucial role in decision-making.
In this webinar, we will explore children’s spiritual development and needs, both in terms of theology and practical application for integrating spiritual support for children into your own medical practice.
1 CEU included for nurses and social workers.
Webinar participants will:
1. Gain an understand of spiritual development in healthy children, as well as challenges around studying that development
2. Understand the current literature and data on spiritual needs of children facing life-threatening illness
3. Learn tips for integrating spiritual support of children in their own practice
