About this event

  • Date and time Wed 14 Jul 2021 from 10:00am to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health

Despite the growing number of children within the UK with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, there remain significant barriers to the timely integration of palliative care services for many patients.

This study day will explore the core principles of delivering care to children with palliative care needs and will draw on expertise from leading professionals within the field as well as the families themselves.

Trainees will be given the chance to explore the full remit of palliative care services available and reflect on some of the ethical challenges arising towards the end of life.

Learning objectives include:

  • The broad definition of palliative care in childhood and factors that determine when the care of a patient becomes palliative
  • Appropriate therapeutic intervention in symptom control
  • Local opportunities for respite care, including hospice availability

Registration for this webinar will close 2 hours prior to the start time. You will receive the webinar link 2 hours before the meeting. Late registrations will not be accepted. 

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 30 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
