Discounted booking for the 2020 RCPCH Conference and exhibition closes on Thursday 27 February – don’t miss out on this special rate.
Taking place from the 28-30 April at the ACC Liverpool, the theme for this year’s event is ‘Innovating for child health’ and it is a vital opportunity to come together to explore the current challenges facing paediatricians and discuss what we need to do to ensure a bright future for child health.
The ‘State of Child Health 2020‘ report, which is due to be published in March, will reveal fascinating insights and paint a picture of child health in the UK.
The RCPCH will be hosting sessions that explore the report’s findings and what this means for the future of child health…
- How healthy are UK children? – State of child health in 2020
Speakers: Dr Ronny Cheung & Dr Rakhee Shah
This session will provide an overview of the latest data on a range of child health outcomes in the UK, covering physical and mental health, alongside social determinants of health (e.g. poverty and education). We’ll discuss how paediatricians can make use of the data and provide health promotion advice to their patients.
- State of child health in 2020 – how can we improve?
Speakers: Dr Ronny Cheung, Dr David Tuthill, Dr Steve Turner, Dr Ray Nethercott, RCPCH & Us Children and Young People Network
This interactive session will explore the findings from the recently published State of Child Health report. It will examine child health priorities that require change, looking at trends within the data alongside lived experiences of children and young people. We will look at policy change and discuss how we can make meaningful improvements in child health.
