Pediatric Pulmonology Support Resources

The Respiratory Center for Children has nurse educators, social workers, nutritionists and an educational program to help support families who have children with chronic respiratory illnesses.

Nurse Educators

Nurse educators assure continuity of care by providing ongoing assistance to our patients and their families. Services include:

  • Disease-specific education and counseling
  • Guidance throughout the entire diagnosis and treatment process

Social Work Services

Our social worker helps our patients and their families handle the physical, emotional and financial stresses of living with a chronic illness. Services include:

  • Education and support groups
  • Individual counseling
  • Referrals to community-based services

Nutrition Support

  • Nutritionists play an important role in the well-being of our patients. Services include:
  • Education and counseling on good nutrition for growth and development
  • Nutritional plans that coincide with medical treatment to address specific needs  

Pulmonary Education Program

Our center offers counseling sessions – either through support groups or ongoing contact with the pediatric nurses and social workers – that help families cope with the day-to-day stress of their child’s chronic respiratory illness. We also work with school systems to educate teachers, administrators, school nurses and students about the dangers of smoking and lung disease. Tailored education programs can be designed by request.

As part of Atlantic Health System Children's Health, physician services are provided by Atlantic Medical Group.
