Jan Serwint On Humanism and Delivering Bad News

The Division of Global Pediatrics was pleased to host Janet Serwint, M.D., a professor of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins this week, who specializes in health care issues of underserved populations.

Dr. Serwint presented a Pediatric Grand Rounds at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital and St. Paul Children's Hospital, titled "Humanism in Pediatric Death and Bereavement".

Residents attended Dr. Serwint's workshop, "Sharing Bad News: Anatomy of an Interchange", which included content adapted from her 2000 article in Contemporary Pediatrics, "Sharing Bad News With Parents" (coauthored by Lorene Rutherford, M.D.).
