Clinical Training Recommendations for All Clinicians

CAPC's pediatric clinical training recommendations, developed in partnership with the Pediatric Palliative Care Task Force, are applicable to all clinicians caring for pediatric patients (i.e., neonates, perinates, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults), and their families. These recommendations are an important step towards improving clinician capacity to effectively care for these patients.

Based on guidance from the National Consensus Project’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, the recommendations cover four aspects of care:

  1. Assessing the needs and concerns of pediatric patients and families
  2. Strengthening the care team, patient, and family relationship, and understanding care goals
  3. Managing pain and symptoms
  4. Preventing crises and planning ahead
