Sample text

Against a backdrop of poverty and a developing healthcare system, pediatric palliative care has started to emerge. A few programs exist, such as Umodzi a program located in Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital. Although a registry does not currently exist, Umodzi has the capacity to serve about 500 children per year, many of whom have malignancies. The program is multi-disciplinary and often interfaces with other clinicians in the hospital. Challenges facing pediatric palliative care in Malawi include a lack of trained professionals, a lack of funds, and lack of access to morphine.

In 2004, the first children’s program was started at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Children with cancer were the first focus, but one-year later the scope of services were extended to treat non-cancer cases. This well-established program has allowed for training of staff, a bereavement support group in the neonatology department, and a homecare program. 7 Thailand Although the Thai government has a universal healthcare system, palliative care is not a current priority to receive funding. Yet, the demand for pediatric palliative care exists and any guidelines that exist to meet these demands are typically facility based (in academic, tertiary hospitals).

For example, Srinagarind Hospital in northeast Thailand began a pilot project in 2004 to serve cancer patients and has since established the Srinagarind Palliative Care Unit, which is responsible for consultative services, education, and research efforts. Despite the integration of palliative medicine into the medical curriculum in some Thai medical schools, there is currently no formal post-graduate training or palliative medicine specialization. Among other barriers, there is a general lack of awareness of pediatric palliative care, a reluctance of parents to tell their children that they are dying, and the desire to have children die at home which requires additional coordination to ensure that the children’s pain and symptom needs are met.
