Description

End-of-life (EOL) care in pediatrics is a unique subspecialty lacking adequate provider education and training. Patient and family outcomes may improve when clinicians are provided with training in this care. Recognizing the need for this specialized education, a small group of bereavement coordinators created an institution-wide pediatric EOL summit at a large urban pediatric teaching hospital. One hundred forty-five clinicians from 14 diverse disciplines attended the first annual pediatric EOL summit. A survey was sent to the participants for feedback. The survey results suggested an overwhelmingly positive response to the summit. Continuing to provide this educational conference is critical to improving care for patients and families, particularly at the end of life.
