As part of its Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® campaign, NINR has released Spanish-language versions of its materials for families of children with serious illnesses.

The newly released materials include an at-a-glance fact sheet, a resource card for families on finding support, and a series of family stories. In November 2015, NINR released a Spanish-language version of its brochure for families that provides an overview of palliative care. The fact sheet, resource card, and family stories available on NINR’s new Spanish-language campaign web page complement the brochure and make additional NINR campaign materials available to the Spanish-speaking population.

NINR’s Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® campaign aims to raise awareness of and improve communications about pediatric palliative care. This evidence-based communications campaign offers materials for health care providers and for families that have children living with serious illnesses.
