Who’s Caring for the Children?

Being, Listening, Speaking

Communicating difficult news with clarity and compassion

A Pediatric Palliative Care Training

Using evidence-based tools and strategies, this one-day, interactive and experiential training will inspire those caring for children with complex medical conditions as we listen and engage in meaningful dialog with families and among ourselves.

Newly published curriculum from the End-of- Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) on Communication will be adapted for our community needs. This is an interagency and interdisciplinary training for physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, administrators, and others in our community caring for children with life-threatening conditions and families bereaved by the loss of a child.

Six hours of CME will be awarded from the American Academy of Family Physicians. Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing Provider Number CEP 9713 for five contact hours.
