Nadace rodiny VlÄŤkovĂ˝ch is playing a crucial role as a host and organizer of the event. Bringing top-level education to the Czech Republic and connecting Czech experts with the best experts from around the world is one of our key long-term goals. The foundation is happy to provide funding for the event as part of its commitment to achieving this goal. 

 

Who is EPEC-Pedicatrics for? 

EPEC-Pediatrics is a program specifically designed to meet the needs of all professionals who are involved in the care of children suffering from serious illnesses and their families. The program’s content and structure are formulated in a precise manner to benefit various professionals from the field of Pediatric Palliative Care, including doctors, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychotherapists, educators, spiritual care providers, and others who work with seriously ill children. It is divided into three different levels. Nadace rodiny Vlčkových supports Czech professionals in all three levels.


The largest education event will be held in Prague this June and will offer Level 1 and Level 2:

Participants will gain the knowledge needed to provide specialist palliative care to pediatric patients and their families.


2) June 6-7, Level 2: EPEC-Pediatrics Train-the-trainer Conference is a program designed for professionals in Children’s Palliative Care who aspire to become leaders in the field both in the Czech Republic and internationally, and who wish to teach other professionals as well. Through interactive and intensive group work, they will learn how to teach pediatric palliative care in their region.

 

What will you learn and how? 

The symposium and conference are based on 24 modules that reflect the topics and principles of  Pediatric Palliative Care valid globally. It is led by world’s top leaders in Palliative Care with experience from various cultures, nations and different fields of children’s Palliative Care. The education is highly practical and based on workshops, accompanied by lectures, interesting case studies, and simulations that help train participants on the spot. All participants will be divided into smaller groups to facilitate discussions, share their experiences, and address them in the groups.
