The Palliative Care Team (PaCT) at Children's Mercy Kansas City is seeking to add a BE/BC Pediatric Palliative Care physician to join its team. Candidates who have completed a Palliative Medicine fellowship are preferred.

Responsibilities of the position include attending on the palliative care consultation service and participating educational and research activities. The opportunity exists for protected time for teaching, research and program development.

The PaCT at Children's Mercy Kansas City is a robust consult program that has been following patients in the hospital and the outpatient clinics for more than 10 years. The PaCT collaborates extensively with social work, chaplaincy and child life services integrating care, which includes pain and symptom management, with the primary care team.

The current team is comprised of five registered nurses with specialized training and expertise in palliative care and one physician who is fellowship trained and board certified in palliative care. Expansion in our health care system, including the recent addition of our Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center, has also expanded the opportunities for the PaCT.
