Specifically, our experts touch on what UPMC Children’s “full-service” palliative care program includes, the program’s increased focus on care and support outside of the hospital, the importance of philanthropy in funding these supportive services and research that affects children all around the world, the need for increased research funding in these areas and more training opportunities for pediatric palliative care physicians, and more.
