Group of smiling childrenThis workshop will now be online! Register at the bottom of this page to join virtually.

Pediatric care is changing and improving all the time and it can be difficult for healthcare providers to stay on top of the newest practices, treatments, and approaches. Professionals are challenged to stay current in the innovations and advances that can lead to better outcomes and improve the quality of care for children, as well as the latest social challenges facing children. What’s more, it can be hard to find time to explore important issues such as medical ethics, office practice, medical home and well care.

This course provides clinicians with the latest updates and innovations in pediatric healthcare in order to improve patient care and outcomes. The course is formatted to engage learners through virtual lectures, opportunities for application and reflection, breakout sessions and to equip participants with the necessary tools to apply their findings in practice.
