Training for Hospice Services for Children

Transitions was honored to host Kristen James and Kim Downing from the Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (GIPPCC) and Dr. Billie Winegard, OSF/CHOI Medical Director, last April 19 in Champaign, IL. It was an emotional day honing our skills to care for terminally ill children and their families. We learned that there are only 11 hospice providers in the entire state of Illinois that are willing and able to care for dying children at home. Transitions is proud to be one of those providers in Central Illinois. Thank you to GIPPCC and Dr. Winegard for sharing the day with us and for your contributions to pediatric hospice and palliative care.
