Regional Colloboration: Improving Care for Children with Advanced Illnesses



The Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition warmly invites you to attend:

Regional Collaboration: Improving Care for Children with Advanced Illnesses

Many children go out of their communities for health care but want to be home as much as possible. Often hospice or home care programs in the local communities don't have the resources to care for terminally ill children. Because of this, the main topic of the conference is regionalization.

Keynote Speakers:
Joanne Wolfe, MD, MPH, Division Chief of Pediatric Palliative Care in the Department of Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Director, Pediatric Palliative Care, Boston Children’s Hospital
