2018 Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care (EPEC) – Pediatrics

April 12, 2018 8 a.m. – April 13, 2018 5 p.m., Minneapolis

The EPEC-Pediatrics curriculum features state-of-the-art knowledge in pain and symptom management, as well as training in the skills required to address key domains for pediatric palliative care. The curriculum is designed to give pediatric healthcare providers, and especially pediatric oncology specialists, the knowledge and skills needed to provide excellent palliative care to their patients and their families. Based on the well-established and proven training methods of EPEC, this curriculum features a high impact, widely disseminated approach that utilizes a train-the-trainer model.  With knowledge gained through the EPEC-Pediatrics curriculum, physicians, APRNs, RNs, social workers, and psychologists will be equipped to become trainers who will educate local interdisciplinary teams that provide care to children with cancer and hematological conditions, thus optimizing pediatric palliative care outreach within the pediatric hematology/oncology context. Click here for more information and to register.
