Pediatric Palliative Care Community of Practice (in French)

Sessions will run from April 2024 to April 2025.

Come be part of the Pediatric Palliative Care Community of Practice, in collaboration with Le Phare, Enfants et Familles! This community of practice will allow you to network and learn from experts across French-speaking Canada who share your interest in the integrated approach to pediatric palliative care.

This COP is ideal for health care professionals in pediatric palliative care working in an interdisciplinary approach: physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, spiritual care providers, and other professionals with a particular interest in pediatric palliative care.

Members of this COP will have the opportunity to gather every two months with a panel of experts in the field to participate in case discussions and explore current topics in pediatric palliative care such as symptom management, pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to pain, and psychosocial and spiritual support, among others.
