Pediatric End of Life Simulation: October 7, 2014

The Pediatric End of Life seminar will include a simulation bringing together Nursing, Health Profession, and Medical students to participate in a high fidelity simulation and discussion. The simulation will focus on the case of an infant, his family, and his health care providers as the infant faces death. A panel of practicing health care professionals, along with a parent who has experienced the death of a child, will present their perspectives and answer questions during a debriefing following the simulation. The focus of this IPE seminar is to allow professional health care provider students the opportunity to discuss death and dying as it relates to their practice. It provides insight into the use of appropriate and helpful interventions as well as essential communication skills during this process.
