Pediatric Palliative Care: Enhancing Family-Centered Care for Children with Life-Threatening Conditions--An Introduction to the Curriculum of The Initiative for Pediatric Palliative Care (IPPC)

Overview

In its recent report, When Children Die, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) highlighted the urgent needs of children with life-threatening conditions. For clinicians and institutions committed to meeting those needs by improving pediatric palliative and end-of-life care, The Initiative for Pediatric Palliative Care (IPPC) offers a number of educational and quality improvement resources. During this workshop, participants will receive an overview of IPPC's innovative curriculum and video series, which were designed both to facilitate individual clinician learning and to provide suggestions to institutions for strengthening their programs and services. Participants will also experience several activities from the curriculum.

Objectives

During the workshop's activities, participants will:

1. Identify values and behaviors of health care professionals that are conducive to ethical and effective engagement with children and families.

2. Develop an understanding of the challenges faced by health care professionals when engaging in difficult conversations with children and families as well as the attitudes, skills, and behaviors relevant to communicative and relational competence.

3. Use a conceptual framework for approaching difficult decisions about the use of life-sustaining treatments for children and recognize the moral obligation to share decision making with parents.

4. Explore the challenges experienced by health care professionals in working with children at the end of life and their families as well as coping strategies used by professionals in those situations.

Administrator for Cardiovascular Services

Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare

Are you in an apolitical state, reluctant to participate in anything that sounds like politics? Have you yet to consider the ramifications of inactivity for the profession and for health care policy?

Sometimes important words are used so often that the meaning behind them is obscured or even diminished. The word 'partnership' is heard commonly in our language to describe relationships ranging from business to personal. 'Partnership' is also a key word in discussions of family-centered pediatric health care. But what is its real meaning? Using stories from both families and health care professionals, this session will define some of the characteristics of authentic partnerships and illustrate their impact on the quality of care for children and families. Strategies for strengthening parent-professional partnerships will be offered.

Cindy Garlesky, MSN, ARNP, CEN

Nurse Practitioner, Pain Service

Miami Children's Hospital

Miami, FL

In contrast to children with acute pain, children with chronic pain rarely exhibit objective, observable signs of pain. Chronic pain has been estimated to affect up to 20% of the pediatric population and poses a significant challenge in clinical management. Additionally, the boundaries of chronic pain management extend far with implications into the developmental, psychosocial, and physiological realms. Using case presentations, current assessment and management of chronic pain in children will be explored. Case studies will be used to differentiate acute versus chronic pain and identify ways to better assess and manage chronic pain in children.

Janice Hayes, PhD, RN

Trauma Nurse Researcher

Trauma Resuscitation Unit

Miami Children's Hospital

Management of pediatric spinal injuries must be tailored to the individual child's age, neurological status, and type and level of injury. The biological differences of children make differences in fracture patterns and the management necessary for successful treatment. Head size relative to the body, flexibility of the spine, growth plates, and the elasticity and compressibility of the bone make spinal injuries in children a challenge. Using a case study we will look at questions related to care and patient outcomes. Partnerships between staff nurses and nurse researchers to develop meaningful clinical research will be discussed.
