  • Overview

    Dr. Stefan Friedrichsdorf, medical director of the Pain and Palliative Care Program at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, discusses a range of topics within the field of pediatric palliative care. In contrast to the expected standard of care for adults, many children with life-limiting and terminal diseases receive inferior treatment in this area. Given that a child's condition may last well into adulthood, effective programs embrace physical, emotional, social and spiritual elements, with a focus on enhancing the child's quality of life and providing support for their family. Dr. Maurice Pickard hosts.
