Annual Pediatric Palliative Care Symposium
Every fall, a team of dedicated individuals puts together a two-day symposium for care givers, physicians, families and anyone interested to learn more about pediatric palliative care.
2017 Pediatric Palliative Care Symposium
Woven Together: Care-Giving and Care-Receiving
The Crossroads of Caring for Another and Caring for Self
September 28-29, 2017
Living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition requires a wide circle of careers. It is not enough to empower and support a child with such a condition, siblings, parents, and even the family. Optimizing care and hope also requires attention to volunteer and professionals that are a part of the circles of care. If any “care-giver” is compromised in their well-being or ability to provide their best, the care of a person living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition can be adversely affected.
"There are no words that will truly express my heartfelt thanks for an incredible symposium!! So many perspectives on resiliency and self care! We truly can learn from each other, integrate the tools we learned at home personally, professionally and educate those we work with!! An incredible line up of passionate leaders in this sometimes, very difficult field, where demands take a toll and resiliency isn't easy to find. Thank You again for 2 incredible days!! Looking forward to next year's conference!!!" - 2017 Attendee
