Pediatric Palliative Care Training (Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund)
The goal of this project was to provide comprehensive care to children, including the relief of suffering, to improve the quality of life of children with chronic conditions including HIV. The project sought to:
- Prepare health facility staff to provide pediatric palliative care;
- Capacitate families and communities in identifying and managing conditions that need palliative care for children;
- The DPWMF-funded training successfully motivated participants to improve the care provided to children in their current work environments. Participants acquired knowledge and skills in pediatric palliative care, including pain relief management and how to care for a child with life-threatening conditions.
