Paediatric Palliative Care: 13 -15 October 2017
Written by useradmin

 

In recent years, palliative care has generated increasing interest in Malaysia and surrounding regions. As a result, paediatricians and nurses from paediatric services have attended the various workshops that we provide. In 2012, Hospis Malaysia helped advocate a national strategy for paediatric palliative care and with that, we saw the priority and need in organising a workshop on paediatric palliative care.

Many children and families are suffering from various limiting illness. Paediatric palliative care offers a specialised approach in dealing with not just the diseases but also the symptoms and issues related to physical, psychological, social and spiritual distress derived from the illness. Approaches to communication, clinical decision-making, placement of care, ethical issues and organisational and personal care issues will also be covered in Days 1 and 2 of the workshop. Day 3 of the workshop will focus on challenging issues at an advanced level. 
 
The workshop sessions are structured into 2 parts and can be attended independent of each other. Participants are welcome to attend all 3 days. The team of invited speakers will be facilitating all three (3) days of the workshop.

For the one day, Advanced Session of the workshop (15 October), we will be discussing the management of challenging clinical issues. Participants are encouraged to submit their challenging cases for discussion with the experts. This day will also include tips on how to integrate research and Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) into clinical practice.
