Not leaving anyone behind: equality in access to palliative care

9 October will be the World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. Once again, this year, the Children’s Palliative Care team plans a conference to provide information about quality of life and the availability of services in palliative care, to take place in Liepāja.

The conference will take place in partially online format.

The schedule for this year’s event is planned primarily around the families, and this is why members of families with children that have serious chronic illnesses are particularly welcome to join it, including everyone who participate in the everyday life and care for such children.

Registration is, obviously, also open to any caregivers, assistants and any interested members of the public. The programme of the conference consists of three thematic units, so that everyone can get answers to the questions important to them.

The topics of the conference will include:

  • Nutrition in families with a special child.
  • What happens to adults? Current options and future goals for palliative care in Kurzeme.
  • Children with special needs in the context of the current epidemiological situation.
  • Assistants for children with special needs: what changes have been introduced, and how parents can keep track.
  • How to find and use information for dealing with specific problems related to childcare.
  • Not too much, but not too little: issues of testing, vaccination and developing communications that families with special children must handle.
  • Awareness and significance of small breaks in the context of ongoing long-term stress etc.
