Description

Jennifer Kett, M.D. is a physician in Pediatric Palliative and Complex Care at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, Tacoma WA. She specializes in complex critical care, working as part of an interdisciplinary team that provides family-centered care for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. She is dedicated to fostering partnerships between clinicians and patients’ families. Her current research focuses on improving families’ experiences in fetal care centers. Jennifer is the senior editor of the American Academy of Pediatrics Young Physicians’ Newsletter.

When children and youth are facing serious illness or death, care needs to respond to the special needs of both the patient and the families. This session will use case studies to explore some of those dynamics and challenges.

On completion of this session, participants should be able to:

1. Describe similarities and differences between pediatric and adult palliative care

2. Outline the unique challenges faced in pediatric palliative care (medically, ethically, legally and socially)

3. Outline an initial approach for managing some of these challenges

4. Describe the key components of the interdisciplinary pediatric palliative care team
