Palliative care: Pediatric end of life care, policy and research

Presented by
Pamela Hinds, RN, PhD, FAAN
Association Center Director, Center for Translational Science

Early in her nursing career, Pamela Hinds was struck by the fact that some children could survive difficult illnesses and traumas, while others couldn't. This led her to a career of extensive research, where she explores the roles that communication, hopefulness, and palliative care can play in increasing healthy outcomes for entire family units, even in situations where death is inevitable.
