Advance Care Planning (ACP) for children with life-limiting conditions has different difficulties than ACP for adults. How do we consider the child’s hope and the hope of the family to look after them? Especially when confronted with a family that is in a situation where death is inevitable, but still has some hope for cure, we as medical professionals may feel various difficulties.

We are honored to have Dr Nobuyuki Yotani from Japan to speak on this topic. Dr Nobuyuki Yotani M.D., Ph.D. is the Head of the Department of Palliative Medicine at the National Center for Child Health and Development, Japan. He is also the Director of Japanese Society for Palliative Medicine. His major fields in research are Pediatric Palliative Care and Advanced care planning for children.

This session will provide us with an opportunity to think about what is important when confronting children and their families in situations where death is inevitable.

This is the third session of our Palliative Care for Children: Learning & Fellowship Forum Series!

The programme will be in the following format:
– Case presentation with Q&A
