Bringing Palliative Care to Your Pediatric Practice

Palliative care in infants and children is a critical and evolving field. In this grand rounds video presentation, Dr. Sirisha Perugu, CHOC Children’s neonatologist, and Meg Mohr, FNP-BC, MSN, coordinator of CHOC’s pediatric advanced care team, provide valuable insight.  More specifically, they:

  • define palliative care and provide a brief history of its development;
  • highlight the ways palliative care adds value to culturally sensitive and family- centered care;
  • examine the health care provider’s role in end-of- life care and patient management decisions;
  • and suggest how the health care provider can assist a family whose child requires the added layer of support of palliative care.
