Talking About Palliative Care with Your Pediatric Patients and Their Families.
As a health care provider, you are uniquely positioned to discuss options for palliative care with your pediatric patients and their families. The materials below are designed to help you discuss palliative care with your pediatric patients and their families.
This toolkit can help you facilitate a workshop to inform your peers about pediatric palliative care and the Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® campaign. The toolkit contains a presentation, promotional materials, and educational resources.
The Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® Customizable Tear-off Pad

It also includes customizable patient education sheets that can be filled out during patient visits. Download your free copy in English [PDF] or Spanish [PDF].
