This seminar focuses on the experience of the family during a child's life-threatening illness, up to and including the time of death. Through the use of case examples and a PowerPoint presentation, participants will be introduced to a range of experiences families may have during their child's illness, and to a range of responses that may be helpful in supporting the family. Attention will be given to the similarities and differences in the experience of different family members, including parents, siblings, and the extended family, and how to provide support to all parties.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe multiple cultural variables that shape clinical encounters with children and families at the end of life.
  • Apply the cornerstones of clinical practice in responding to the needs of children and families during a child's illness.
  • Understand differences and similarities in the experience of family members, and the special situation of siblings.
