Complementary Medicine Symptom Assessment Management Program (CAM-SAM)
Des Plaines, IL
This trail blazing effort is designed to lessen pain and suffering of medically fragile and technology dependent children ages birth through 21 who have life-threatening and/or terminal illnesses and are currently residing in transitional care facilities. Complementary therapies used include massage and music. CAM-SAM, the first program of its kind in pediatric transitional care, will be a ground-breaking initiative that might well be the only such program in the United States at this time.
