About the Pediatric Palliative Care 2023 Webinar Series
Registration Opens in December 2022

There continues to be significant data highlighting the workforce shortage in pediatric palliative care. As the number of children with chronic, complex and life-limiting illness continues to increase, the training needs of physicians and healthcare teams has increased as well. 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 Pennsylvania’s Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (PPCC), Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (GIPPCC), Children’s Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition of California (CHPCC), and the CSU Shiley Haynes 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.

REGISTRATION FOR THE 2023 PPC Webinar Series will be open in DECEMBER 2022.

Pain Management

Methadone, when dosed appropriately, may improve pain control for children even when other opioids have been insufficient.
