The Texas Pediatric Palliative Care Consortium and Project Joy and Hope are pleased to announce the 11th Annual Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care Essentials Conference. Compassion – a deep sense of empathy and desire to alleviate suffering – is a principle hallmark of pediatric palliative care. The complexity of our health care system, and the needs of children and families facing serious and life-limiting illnesses requires health care providers to provide compassionate care across the disease trajectory and locations of care. Compassion based health care improves quality of care, patient and family trust of providers, and improves care outcomes.
This year's conference: Creating Compassionate Community in Pediatric Palliative Care seeks presentations that highlight exploration of compassionate care within hospital and community based organizations in the following categories
- Pain and Sympton Management
- Therapies/Supportive Services/Community Based Care
- Advance Care Planning/Care Coordination

- Research/Evidence Based Guidelines/Best Practices
- Patient/Parent/Professional Education
Podium Presentations will be a total of 55 minutes in length allowing a suggested 10 minutes for questions. Accepted primary presenter will receive 50% discount on conference registration.
