The goal of this program is to improve the integration and delivery of palliative care in children with life-threatening illnesses. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Define pediatric palliative care (PPC) and understand the barriers to its use.
2. Recognize distinctions between adult palliative care and PPC.
3. Cite the minimum standards of PPC per the American Academy of Pediatrics.
4. Determine which children require early PPC.
5. Provide nonphysical elements of PPC.
