Description

Objectives
Propose pediatric program design or expansion
based on newly acquired skills of defining a
desirable and functional scope that aligns with
health system’s missions and values and identifies
areas of potential growth and collaboration
within the health system.
Discuss the creation of a formal business plan for
development of a pediatric palliative care program
to present to senior hospital leadership
that effectively highlights the benefits and challenges
of a billing revenue only strategy and
thus a need for operating dollars and philanthropic
support as a comprehensive business
plan strategy.
Develop a strategy for their community to implement
PC with limited resources and increase buyin
from stakeholders.
As with adult palliative care, pediatric palliative care is
experiencing rapid growth. Like adult palliative care,
pediatric palliative care practitioners also need to
design and sustain programs that respond to their
own institutional needs and values, that show value
added through metrics and quality improvement
research, that acknowledge the national palliative
care staffing shortage, that address the growing need
for outpatient resources in all communities, and
that have strategies embedded to prevent staff
burnout. Distinct from adult palliative care is pediatrics’
need for greater philanthropic and operational
dollar support as pediatric palliative care has not
had the patient volume to show the reduced cost savings
strategy that drives many adult palliative care
budget plans. This workshop will present strategies
for preliminary pediatric program planning and
budgeting that address these needs through the presentation
of five distinct pediatric palliative care programs.
Education will be heavily driven through case
presentations that contrast resource-rich versus
resource limited environments, newer programs
versus more established programs, and inpatient
versus outpatient arenas. After providing this platform,
the workshop will utilize these experts to assist
in small group discussions that focus on participants’
unique program needs and questions.
