MedPal-CNN - a new app to teach healthcare professionals about paediatric palliative care
MedPal-CNN is an easy -to-use, educational mobile app designed to teach healthcare professionals about paediatric pallaitive care (PPC) and link them with existing evidence-based recommendations.
Dr Amery’s book forms basis of app content
Dr. Justin Amery’s book, A Really Practical Handbook of Children’s Palliative Care, forms the basis of this application’s content. Our app development team expanded upon the already excellent information found in Dr. Amery’s book to create MedPal–CNN. We also drew heavily upon
Dr. Michelle Grunauer’s considerable knowledge of pediatric palliative care, which she has gleaned from years of study, research, and clinical practice as she has pioneered novel palliative care initiatives in Ecuador. Dr. Michelle Meiring, a South African pediatric palliative care advocate and pioneer, has also contributed to this app. Finally, the app also includes a multitude of tools and recommendations from organizations like the World Health Organization, Together for Short Lives, and others.
