Introduction to Children's Palliative Care


Suitable for any personnel within the children’s workforce, this introductory course will enable participants to debate the meaning of children’s palliative care and the ways in which it may be provided.

Whilst contextualised to the broader children’s palliative care policy framework, the course simultaneously facilitates multi-disciplinary local networking and recognition of personal responsibilities for children’s palliative care.

Loss and Bereavement

As practitioners across psycho-social and psychotherapeutic client bases, we are often faced with the realities of clients and our own mortality. Developing deeper self-awareness and personal / professional resilience without losing the personable element of our direct interactions with clients can be challenging, scary and equally afford us unexpected intra-personal growth.

The session will invite learners to explore their understanding of Paediatric Palliative Care within personal and professional contexts; drawing upon the work of Stroebe and Parkes; supported by examination of NICE guidance on bereavement Support and ACT Care Pathways. We shall use case material to aid our work through facilitated group discussion and networking.

With an emphasis upon integrated service delivery and recognition of multi-disciplinary roles and responsibilities, this course uses a case study approach to explore the variety of available tools and strategies to support this vital aspect of our work.
