The Human Journey: Lessons in Perinatal and Neonatal Palliative Care

October 17, 2017

Infants suffering serious and life-limiting illness, and their families, need guidance and compassion from health care professionals. 

This intensive symposium on perinatal and neonatal palliative care will feature lectures and discussions about the latest clinical and ethical information in the field.  Symposium attendees will build skills and confidence for working with seriously-ill and dying infants and their families.  We will also introduce ways for caregivers to cope with their own needs and feelings.
