Tender Transitions: Pediatric Palliative Care for Families and Staff

Launches Friday, October 28, 2022

Virtual Event

Register today for this meaningful opportunity to learn from key leaders in pediatric palliative care including, Betty Davies, Ted Bowman, Bryan Kingsriter, Dr. Lahn Nguyen, and a Crescent Cove couple.

Families of children living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition face one transition after another. Birth, disease onset, diagnosis, hospitalization, stability, exacerbation, respite, and hospice transitions are common. Supportive and exemplary palliative care for families, and the staff serving such families at tender thresholds requires regular review.


In this symposium, attention will be given to perspectives and practices that can lead to quality care at certain thresholds:

  • Support for parental losses and grief
  • Support for parents as couples
  • Support when children move from one care site to another
  • Support for staff in pediatric palliative care and children’s hospice settings

All these areas of support will be highlighted in this symposium. We believe that attention to these transitions can encourage consideration of best practices for all engaged in child and family care.
