Sarah Friebert, MD - Akron Children's Hospital | Northeast Ohio Medical University
The Ben-Efraim Family Endowed Lectureship in Pediatric Palliative Care
This session will explore current state-of-the-art thinking about PPC, both at the clinical/patient/family level as well as for organizations, systems and communities. We will also review upcoming trends in palliative care and health care generally, and how they will affect PPC teams and stakeholders.
Pediatric Palliative Care (PPC) has come a long way in a short time as a field and as emerging standard of care for children of all ages with life-threatening conditions and their families. Many barriers to its effective dissemination still exist, but the future is bright as our health care system transitions from volume to value. This session will explore current state-of-the-art thinking about PPC, both at the clinical/patient/family level as well as for organizations, systems and communities. We will also review upcoming trends in palliative care and health care generally, and how they will affect PPC teams and stakeholders. In particular, he importance of whole-person care is also becoming even more salient in the age of personalized medicine; spirituality and attention to resiliency and wellness are crucial factors in healthcare delivery and will be highlighted.
Education goals for this session:
- Describe the current landscape of pediatric palliative care in the United States
- Identify 3 emerging national trends in pediatric palliative care that impact care planning and delivery
- Outline the role of high-quality palliative care in value-based and medical home models of pediatric care
- Recognize the crucial role of spirituality in pediatric health care
