Perinatal Hospice and Palliative Care in a Mid-Sized Hospital

by Tammy Ruiz Ziegler, RN, CPLC
  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 R-CERP
  • Handout: Yes

The concept of “Perinatal Hospice” was first proposed in the literature in the late 1990’s and a few programs were developed in the early 2000’s. There are currently 300 programs throughout the world in hospitals, hospices and volunteer organizations, but with 5000 community hospitals in the US alone, there is a need to disseminate information helpful in starting new programs in mid-sized hospitals. The presenter founded one of the first 40 programs in the world before most resources now available had been written. She will share history, academic and professional resources and personal experience in how to provide this needed resource for the families you care for.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: The learner will list 3 interventions that can be offered to parents requesting perinatal palliative care.
Objective 2: The learner will list 3 reliable professional resources where they can find more information about how to provide perinatal palliative care.
Objective 3: The learner will describe a care option to offer their patient population now even if their hospital isn’t ready to commit to a fully developing a perinatal palliative care program.
