Pediatric palliative care: Teaching and research


Another major role undertaken by CHU Sainte-Justine’s palliative care consultation unit and in keeping with its philosophy of supporting the attending teams, is the dissemination of knowledge and expertise.  Of the many means of disseminating information, courses and workshops are conducted by members of the consultation unit and are intended for the various CHU teams.  

The pediatric palliative care consultation unit also offers training sessions to pediatric, family medicine and physical medicine residents, as well as to externs in medicine and nursing students from Université de Montréal and foreign physicians in palliative care training.  One of the major activities carried on by the unit is the provision of support to CSSS and local hospitals who assume the management of children in palliative care (via the phone and joint home visits, where needed). 

Lastly, Mr Humbert is jointly responsible for the education sector in palliative care at the faculty of medicine. 


Moreover, CHU Sainte-Justine has done groundbreaking research work in pediatric palliative care.  Several research strategies have been implemented over the last few years including asthenia, grandparent bereavement, etc.
