    The importance and significance of hospital to home transitions following hospitalization for children with medically complex needs have been the focus of considerable research and healthcare policy (Leyenaar, J.K., Rizzo, P.A., Khodyakov, D., Leslie, L.K., Lindenauer, P.K., & Mangione-Smith, R., 2018). An additional component contributing to the complexities of this patient population is the percentage of children with medically complex needs following non accidental trauma. Utilizing case examples, webinar participants will explore the definition of medical complexity following non accidental trauma and will discuss the evidence based interventions available to best support this patient population.

    Supporting patients and families in the hospital can be emotionally depleting. Many employees in caregiving professions are exposed to unavoidable adverse and distressing events. In order to maintain creativity, resilience, and passion for this work, it is important to find sustainable ways to acknowledge and manage symptoms of trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout. This webinar will review the signs of trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout; describe ways that self-care rituals can increase resiliency and discuss concrete practices that can be incorporated into departmental policies and routines. In this webinar, we will discuss how the implementation of Wellness Champions in the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department can promote holistic wellbeing among clinicians in practical and sustainable ways Suggested Domain: Professional Responsibility 1.0 PDU

    All child life specialists work as part of multidisciplinary teams. The goal of this project was to increase the knowledge that child life and nursing students have of the professional role of the other as well as to increase multidisciplinary communication (in this setting, during simulations, or patient and family interactions). This presentation will discuss how child life and nursing faculty worked together to educate each group of students prior to participation in simulations, the process of participation in simulation, and how students completed surveys pre- and post-participation in simulation to measure communication and role understanding of the other group/profession.

    The location and extent of burn injuries often hinder the medical team’s ability to gain a comprehensive understanding of the child’s developmental and ability level. This can hinder how each multidisciplinary team member is approaching the patient’s care and offering appropriate interventions and activities. Under the leadership of the child life specialist, a burn center multidisciplinary team formally incorporated the Ages and Stages Developmental Screening tool into their standardized practice. The purpose was to gain an understanding of the patient's pre-injury developmental stage and abilities. Assessment results were incorporated into a treatment plan by the PT, OT and child life specialist. This presentation will discuss planning, implementation, results, and lessons learned. The presenters look forward to sharing the implementation of the screening tool for this specific population and discussing implications for other populations who are impacted by injury or necessary medical equipment Suggested Domain: Assessment 1.0 PDU
