Abstract:

Palliative care is a dynamic, multidisciplinary field of medicine that focuses on holistic care for patients with complex, serious, and life-limiting conditions. Neonatal/perinatal palliative care involves care for women pregnant with fetuses who have potentially life-limiting conditions, a holistic approach to family care and decision making, and care for infants with life-limiting or complex medical conditions. This session will discuss key aspects of neonatal/perinatal palliative care. We learn so much from our patients and families, and their stories will provide the framework as we work through important concepts in neonatal/ perinatal palliative care. Topics to be discussed include communication, shared decision making, managing uncertainty, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic approaches to care, the role of hospice, and ethical issues involved in care of neonates at the end of life.

Learning Objectives:

Ojective 1: Identify 2 concepts central in counseling the pregnant woman;

Objective 2: Define responsive breastfeeding;

Objective 3: Engage in reflective practice about the words you use in counseling and teaching.
