A robust team
The interdisciplinary Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Program team is truly one-of-a-kind. Nowhere else is there a team as specialized as ours. Our team works closely with your child and family, your primary doctor or hospital doctor, your nurses and the child life staff to develop the best plan of action for your child and family. The Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Program is lead by:
Stefan Friedrichsdorf, MD, medical director of the Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Program. Dr. Friedrichsdorf is board certified in Pediatrics, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a Diplomate of the American Board of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and trained in hypnosis by the National Pediatric Hypnosis Training Institute. He is the Principal Investigator of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) / National Cancer Institute (NCI) five-year multisite study on the creation, implementation and evaluation of a Pediatric Palliative Care Curriculum (EPEC-Pediatrics).
Dr. Friedrichsdorf lectures extensively both nationally and internationally about pediatric pain medicine, palliative care and integrative medicine and has a track record of publications in the field, including contributions to more than 15 books on the subject. Learn more about his contributions on his blog.
Along with Dr. Friedrichsdorf, you may also meet some of the other all-star doctors and nurse practitioners of the Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Program.
