Ethical Issues in Pediatric Palliative Care

This presentation will discuss the ways in which clinical ethics and palliative care overlap in the care of seriously ill children and their families - as well as the important ways in which they differ. The speaker will touch on common ethical dilemmas that arise in pediatric palliative care practice, using case examples to illustrate the application of relevant ethical frameworks. Specific topics will include parental requests for non-disclosure, "elective" requests for withdrawal of life-sustaining therapies, and disagreement between parents and medical teams about suffering and how best to address it.
