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. 

Event Review: 2018 annual Pediatric Palliative Care Symposium

Relieving Pressures/Enhancing Supports: Basic Needs and Communities of Care

October 25-October 26, 2018

Living with complex, life-threatening conditions requires holistic attention and responses. Like a teeter-totter or mobile, there is always a tension in balancing the emotional, financial, spiritual and daily pressures, medical care and other needs.

This year's Symposium welcomed families, volunteers, and a wide range of practitioners who addressed the continuum of care necessary for families caring for a child with a life-threatening condition.
