Scholarcy highlights

  • Traditional medical training focused on curing disease may not prepare clinicians to provide comfort and solace to their patients facing life-limiting illness
  • We explore the clinician's role in the healing journey through the lens of pediatric brain cancer
  • Clinicians can learn how to be “unconditionally present” for patients and families without immersing themselves in anguish and, eventually, how to help the family find freedom from despair and a full life that still honors the child's memory
