Sick children usually get better. Rarely they don’t. As a paediatrician, do you know how to do the best for a child who is dying? Can you support the child and the family? Do you know how to navigate the statutory issues around child death?
Book now for an informative, lively day at the RSM.
This programme is highly relevant for all paediatricians and focus on level 2 competencies that are difficult to achieve locally. It will enable delegates to know
- the broad definition of palliative care in childhood and to recognise factors which determine when the care of a patient becomes palliative
- appropriate therapeutic intervention in symptom control and local opportunities for respite care, including hospice availability
- the ethical issues in therapeutic intervention in children with life-limiting conditions
- the guidelines on management of sudden infant death
Please register online in advance so that the RSM can plan catering. Registration is available on the day, but lunch cannot be guaranteed and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed
