Pediatric Palliative Care for the Uninitiated
A video series: TechnologyMichelle Moon, DO Apr 13, 2021
This is the fourth in a video series created by Dr. Michelle Moon, a neurologist who lived the experience of losing a child and the knowledge gained of palliative care.
Eighty percent of children receiving palliative care depend on some sort of medical technology, so one major role of pediatric palliative care providers is to help guide decisions around these devices. To do this, it’s important to know the real-life implications of devices like feeding tubes and tracheostomy. This video explores this, and some of the things that influence parents’ decisions.
