Webinar: Creative Conversations: Advanced Care Planning in Pediatrics with Kathy Perko & Debbie Lafond
April 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
WEBINAR: Creative Conversations: Advanced Care Planning in Pediatrics
Caring for infants, children, adolescents and young adults with serious illnesses is challenging, especially when defining goals of care. Advanced care planning (ACP) can be complex due to multiple factors, such as surrogate decision makers, developmental changes over time, uncertain trajectories of pediatric serious illness, and lack of knowledge regarding how to begin ACP conversations, how to talk with parents/guardians who may be young themselves with little experience with death, and often ACP discussions need to happen multiple times due to developmental and disease changes. This webinar will discuss creative ways to engage patients and families in discussions to document goals of care and how to mitigate challenges in ACP.
- Define the similarities and differences between advance care planning, advanced directives and Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatments (MOLST)/Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatments (POLST)
- Define terminology frequently used when discussing resuscitation status with patients and families
- Discuss strategies for children, adolescents and young adults to discuss and document goals of care
- Identify strategies for non-verbal and neurologically impaired children, adolescents and young adults to discuss and document goals of care
