The Pediatric Palliative Care Webinar Series and the Social Work Hospice and Palliative Care Network (SWHPN) offer a joint presentation, generously supported by the Funeral Service Foundation.
Join us for a discussion on how clinical practice in pediatric palliative care has changed in light of COVID-19-related policies and how that has impacted the way we respond to family grief, provide bereavement support, and offer memorialization opportunities.
Additionally, there is enormous collective and personal grief associated with the immense racial inequities that have recently become part of the public consciousness. This grief is very personal for those who have been directly affected by systemic racial inequities, and for whom the knowledge of these inequalities has been a lived experience for hundreds of years. The effect of this additional grief compounded with the uncertainty caused by an ongoing global pandemic has created an unprecedented need for new dialogues and evaluation of support systems provided by communities of care.
This panel of pediatric palliative care social workers and researchers will discuss research, clinical observations, and methods for supporting families and our teams during this challenging time.
