Supportive Care

 The pediatric supportive care team serves infants, children and adolescents who are treated at Golisano Children’s Hospital. Pediatric supportive care is provided alongside the active treatment of a patient’s underlying illness.

The Goals of Pediatric Consultations

  • Help with physical pain and discomfort
  • Relieve emotional, social, and spiritual pain
  • Assist with difficult medical decisions
  • Support patients, families and staff

The team includes pediatricians, nurse practitioners, social workers, and child-life specialists who work closely with other members of the URMC Pediatric teams.

The team also has developed the following programs:

  • Prenatal and neonatal palliative care
  • Pediatric palliative care elective rotation for trainees
  • Close collaboration with Lifetime Care/CompassionNet
  • Bereavement follow-up
