with Melissa Hunt, PharmD and Jessica Sturgeon, MT-BC, HPMT
Children with life-limiting conditions have complex, frequently-changing medication regimens. Medication information is complicated to relay and difficult for patients/families to understand. This session will walk through three complicated pediatric cases, focusing on interdisciplinary communication strategies to ensure effective and accurate discussions with patients and families regarding medication plans.
