Paper Presentations: Professional Practice Issues — Evidence-Based Interprofessional Palliative Care Education: Lessons for Pediatric Oncology Clinicians (222-3)
Basis of inquiry: Clinician education and expertise in palliative care varies widely across pediatric oncology programs, creating disparities in accessing and delivering much needed services to children and their families. Providing interprofessional, onsite team training, as well as institution-wide support for ongoing palliative care education is critical to improving quality of life for pediatric oncology care recipients.
Purpose/Objectives: To describe an evidence-based practice approach for delivering comprehensive interprofessional palliative care education for pediatric oncology clinicians.
