Regence Foundation Launches Palliative Care Grantmaking Program in Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington
Date:10/13/2009

l ill-equipped to manage pediatric patients," said Deborah Jaques, Executive Director of the Oregon Hospice Association. "A primary reason is that we have fewer opportunities to gain skills, experience and information about this important patient group."

"With only two dedicated pediatric hospice programs in Oregon, the need for pediatric palliative care education in hospice settings is compelling," said Bridges Program Director, Kathy Perko, P.N.P. "This grant from The Regence Foundation will mean that hospices throughout Oregon and SW Washington will have more tools to better care for and support dying children and their families."

OHSU Doernbecher, a part of Oregon Health & Science University and a regional leader in pediatric care, created Bridges in 2005 as a pediatric palliative care consult service for providers in Oregon and Southwest Washington who are caring for a child with a life-limiting illness. Bridges also partners with St. Luke's Health System in Boise, Idaho.

Grant money available

Grants are available for nonprofit and public hospitals that are interested in establishing a palliative care program, seeking to implement a plan for a program, and those with a program that seek to expand it through partnerships with other community organizations.
