Linking to this theme, the ICPCN would like to use the month of October to run the #Hatsonforchildrenâ€™shospicecare Social Media campaign that not only raises awareness of childrenâ€™s palliative care but also recognises the various and valuable members of a childrenâ€™s palliative care multi-disciplinary team, all of whom work together to provide holistic and coordinated care to the child and to the family
Who cares? We do!
We thought that the English idiom of â€śwearing many different hatsâ€ť was most appropriate and applicable when describing childrenâ€™s palliative care teams. Our question to you is, â€śIf you are a member of one of these teams, what hat or hats are you wearing?â€ť
We know that some members will wear many hats, for example, mothers with very sick children often become expert nurses, counsellors, teachers and dieticians.
