The Dying Child: End of Life Issues in Pediatrics – 5 CE Credits

WITH KAT KOWALSKI MDIV, BCC; EMILY JOHNSON, MSN, CRNP; CORA WELSH, CCLS, MA

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

A One-Day Workshop
Saturday, May 15, 2021, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm ET

More than 40,000 children in the U.S. die every year from trauma, lethal conditions, heritable disorders, acquired illnesses and prematurity. Pediatric palliative care is a dynamic interdisciplinary approach to care that, in the face of complex and life-threatening diagnoses, strives to enrich a child’s quality of life through relief of pain and other symptoms while also addressing the child’s and family’s social, psychological and spiritual needs.


In this session, members of The Johns Hopkins’ Pediatric Palliative Care Team will share their experience and expertise working with pediatric patients and their families. Students will gain a sense of life and death in an ICU and how the palliative care team works to ensure that even the briefest lives are infused with sacredness and dignity.


Topics covered will include:

  • perinatal palliative care
  • the role of parents as decision-makers
  • inclusion of children and teens in a death (their own or a sibling’s)
  • memory-making and more.

This workshop can be taken individually or as part of the Integrative Thanatology Certificate Training | An Art of Dying Education Program.
